From Gramophone to I-Pod
As a nurse, working as part of a team of nurses within the periop department, there are challenges in how we communicate and understand each other. Part of the reasons for this challenge is the different generations within these teams. By discussing generational differences, my goal is to create a better understanding of our ourselves and our colleagues to enhance positive working relationships.
