helped a lot. Experience over the years learned me to not react with impulsive but to overthink something before I reacts • I have self-care habits - I have some habits that I carry out when I need some me time • I use my support team – seeing that one of my weaknesses is to take on too much responsibility. So I will reach out for help when I am not coping. One of my weak points in that I don’t delegate/ or taking on to much responsibility. This also came out on my 360 feedback from my support team.

Interpersonal skills and effective communication among healthcare professionals are at the core of quality patient care. Interpersonal skills are defined by Rungapadiachy (1999, p.193) as “those skills which one needs in order to communicate effectively with another person or a group of people”.

The two key topics in class in the last weeks, for me. Two of the most relevant topics developed in the last weeks were: non-verbal communication and the barriers to communication. Everytime we communicate with another person or group of people, we have to take into account some factors other than what we are actually saying that can affect how the message is going to be received: body language, tone, intonation, facial expressions, and others; this is what we understand for non-verbal communication. As we saw in class “55% of communication is body language, 38% is the tone of voice, and 7% is the actual words spoken.”
