Write about the Communicating and Problem Solving for Health Professionals.
Health professionals need to be engaged in effective communication, critical or advanced thinking and have a problem solving attitude. As mentioned by Goodstone et al. (2013), the concept of critical thinking highlights the ability of the individual to use his skills for evaluation and intelligence simultaneously in order to reach a suitable conclusion. This provides an opportunity for the health professionals to predict the outcomes of the patients thereby, making suitable suggestions. Similarly, the problem solving attitude allows the health professionals to be able to identify, understand and solve the issue faced by the patients thereby, providing suitable treatment and care. As asserted by Arnold and Boggs (2015), effective communication among the health professionals is of utmost significance as this provides an opportunity of clear flow of information thereby, ensuring proper care for the patients. Effective communication is essential for both among the health professionals and between the patients and the health professionals.
