Communication Pathways: Creating Trust and Safety within GP Teams

In this episode of the Medicubes podcast, hosts Kim, Riwka, and Chris delve into the critical topic of effective communication within primary care practices. 

Key Talking Points:

  • The significant impact of verbal, non-verbal, and written communication on team dynamics and overall perception within a primary care practice.
  • Showcasing real-life examples of how swift adaptation to varied communication methods was pivotal in navigating the challenges faced by general practices during the COVID-19 period.
  • Emphasising the importance of understanding and acknowledging individual communication preferences within a team to ensure effective messaging delivery.
  • The discussion comes full circle to underscore how communication strategies need to evolve with the changing dynamics of a practice, and the need for consistent feedback and recalibration to ensure effective communication is maintained.
