It is typical of February, by force of custom, in my area, that words of appreciation are expressed from one person to another. It is observed in various settings, like at school, for example. I remember how children’s faces lit up upon delivery of such offerings (notes resembling postcards, written with colorful wax crayons: From: ABC [class of___] To: XYZ [class of___] “I value this quality about you ____.”)
Expressing appreciation can lead to a sense of confidence; one can see oneself as a valued contributor to the group. In addition, consideration can lead to a sense of camaraderie; a concept, which holds true for groups of any age.
Groups such as members of a perinatal care unit working together in the process of implementing the BFHI/BFI for example. Perhaps a unit that has an atmosphere of camaraderie, is a place where everyone contributes to best practices for the benefit of every parent-infant dyad.
With this in mind, team members may, for example, use the clinical guidance document for health professionals to provide care to the families they work with. These guidelines are let’s say, highly regarded, for their ease of use at improving the quality and efficiency of services provided to families. The use of these guidelines has created a sense of support among clinicians.
Regarding the guidance document per se, let’s suppose for the purpose of illustration in this specific situation that it was developed by an advisory committee: a task force. Dedicated people brought together to conduct discussions and carry out projects focused on a common goal. In other words, one group helps another to provide service and individualized support to families through the creation of guidance documents.
This support can feed into the model of expressing consideration and encourage one group to reach out to the other through established communication channels. This can be an opportunity to cultivate collective working relationships: A possible opportunity to spread the feeling of camaraderie.
