(1 post:)  In the video, Motivation -leader and teamwork the ants are working

(1 post:) In the video Motivation -leader and teamwork the ants are working together by carrying an object and piling it up. At one point a huge leaf falls in front of one ant and he beings to panic. The one leader told everyone we do not need to panic; we are all trained professionals and advise them to go around the leaf (Bahumaid 2017). During the whole time each ant was going around the leaf he cheered them on and gave them motivation to keep on going. The ants were so happy they made it around the leaf. When they made it around the leader told them what a good job they did. The point of this video is that by working together you can find other ways to do accomplish a goal. Sometimes to reach a goal you must find a different route to get there. This video exemplifies teamwork in many ways. The first way is that everyone is helping each other to accomplish a common goal. Next is that when an issue arises and the team is unsure what to do the leader is there to step in and help. The leader helps them complete the goal even though there was a hurdle in the way. Not only did the leader guide them down another path to complete the goal but the leader was there to cheer them on. These are great skills for a leader to have to collaborate and communicate with the time finding an alternate route and to cheer them on from the sidelines because they may lack the confidence in something new. In the article How effective is teamwork really? The relationship between teamwork and performance in healthcare teams: a systematic review and meta-analysis it talks about the relationship between teamwork and performance (Schmutz 2019). The article states that teamwork as a major impact on the performance and it should be valued to maintain a positive outlook for the patient (Schmutz 2019). The article discussed the importance of members of the team that have different backgrounds and having a different understanding on how something works (Schmutz 2019). This statement is so true. The leader in the video could have had a different background he could have been though something like this before. The leader found a different way to get to the top even though there was an obstacle in the way. In the working world everyone is going to be coming from different backgrounds. Take our group we have now we students from the generic RN LPNs and the Medics. Each of these groups bring something different to the table. Each of these groups has a different way of doing something that you may not have thought of. Having a diverse group of people can help lead to a different way of doing something and get the goal you have in mind. References: Schmutz J. B. Meier L. L. & Manser T. (2019).

YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MO1aY1xC80 (2nd Post:) Teamwork in Nursing Teamwork is one of the most important parts of being a successful organization especially when it involves healthcare. To be a successful nurse in any setting being able to work as a team is crucial. When teams coordinate care they decrease the level of stress patients may experience and positively affect outcomes. In addition to easing patient concerns about treatments and procedures while raising efficiency teamworkmay reduce the number of issues related to nurse burnout. The short YouTube video Team Work Inspirational Video by PK Production did a great job expressing the importance of teamwork by explaining that when you replace I with We even illness can become wellness (PK Production 2019). Even in a patients darkest moments if they feel safe around us and that us nurses are all working together to achieve the best possible outcome for this patient it will make their experience that much more bearable. This video also went on to illustrate that we can do so much more when we just work together as a team. I loved how the video explained that sometimes we win but sometimes we learn (PK Production 2019). In any healthcare profession there will be trials tribulations and mistakes; what is important is learning from them. Teamwork Defined. Teamwork is defined in many ways however one I especially prefer is the interaction of two or more professionals about behaviors cognitions and attitudes which contributes to reaching shared goals through interdependent performance (Holmes 2020). This is especially important in nursing because patient care is not a one-person job. As a nurse we constantly work with different doctors specialties families and departments this makes working well with others and as a team crucial in having the best patient outcomes. In recent years the World Health Organization has increased its focus on teamwork in inter-professional healthcare teams to improve patient safety (Holmes 2020). In addition to giving patients the best possible experience when we care for them optimizing patient safety is a key result of working well as a team. Conclusion. Teamwork is essential in healthcare. Fundamentals of teamwork include good communication and collaboration between co-workers reducing the risk something is overlooked potentially leading to an error being made resulting in harm to the patient. Nurses must possess a wide array of traits in addition to working well with others and as a member of a team but teamwork is one of the most important ones. References Holmes T. (2020 March 1).
