Benefits of Effective Communication and Efficiency in Surgery

A year ago, a project on effective communication and efficiency in surgery was undertaken in my place of work. This project was both quantitative and qualitative following its focus on the economic impact of communication, and the nurse’s perspective on the role of communication in the hospital.

This project showcased significant strengths and weaknesses in its qualitative and quantitative design. On using the qualitative design, the project attained more compelling data as it was based on the experiences of the nurses.

The qualitative design allowed the project to exclusively cover the topic of interest since it did not restrict the interviewers to specific questions. However, the information gathered was greatly influenced by the personal biases of the participants.

Thus, the reliability was altered and the information provided could not be used independently. Besides, following a large number of participants engaged in the project, the qualitative design produced a large volume of data that made the interpretation and analysis
to be time-consuming.

On the other hand, the quantitative design stood out as being reliable following its standardized approach to exploring the projects topic. Unlike the quantitative approach, the qualitative design was able to drop biased views since it involved a few variables.

Majority of the variables used were unknown to the researchers, thus, eliminated bias in the project. Therefore, correlating the independent and the dependent variables was made easy.  However, despite the elimination of bias, the use of the standardized procedures exposed the project to structural bias.

In this case, a majority of the conclusions were based on the views of the researchers, and not the nurses who were the respondents. Besides, the quantitative design lacked the compelling feature since it was numerical, and lacked human perception.

By using the combined designs, it was concluded that communication played a significant role in reducing the medical problems and infections such as the central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI). By these findings, the project provided an evidence-based literature that has been used to foster efficiency in surgical operations.

This post introduces a project on effective communication and efficiency in surgery that took
place on the author’s place of work. It indicates that the study employed both qualitative and
quantitative methods to clearly understand the problem, and then further pinpoints the significant
strengths and weaknesses in both designs.The post notes that results from the qualitative part were unreliable in its Inductive reasoning used to synthesize data.

Results generated through the qualitative design were biased and could not be used independently. On the other hand, the quantitative design was appropriate as it clearly analyzed the relationship between dependent and independent variables, targeting the basic elements of analysis.

The post concludes that the concept of communication is a matter of clinical importance and it played a significant role in reducing the medical problems and infections such as the central line associated bloodstream infections.

It can also be noted that healthcare providers have to be committed to technological improvements by upgrading, enhancing, and testing communication strategies to ensure healthcare regulatory requirements are met and to make it possible to provide improved healthcare in entirely new ways.
