Closed-loop communication matters in patient care, reducing errors and helping teamwork with communication and workflow, particularly in situations where there is increased variability. It ensures that the message is properly received by exposing deficiencies that we may have in describing what we heard, which can reflect distraction, confusing terms, or different literacy levels. Using closed-loop communication will not only save you from making errors but also creates an opportunity to teach and empower your medical teams to know why they are doing certain things rather than just following protocols.
