Almost every facet of nursing requires some aspect of group work, and at some point in their career most nurse managers will organize or appoint a work group to carry out selected nursing activities.
Group work can be challenging for members when work expectations are not clear.
However, group outcomes can also be disappointing for the manager who appoints a group, if the group is unable to make decisions and accomplish the specified task or becomes enmeshed in tangential matters.
Social constructivism, a recent addition to the family and group literature, provides a different perspective for understanding and facilitating group work.
This article provides an overview of group work as seen through the lens of social constructivist thought.
