In the course of our team work on the Live Project, I have performed my specific functions. I attempted to do my best to provide the team with the in-depth research of the breast cancer. Our team worked on the study of the breast cancer and my duty was the analysis of risks factors that contributed to the development of the disease. In fact, I was supposed to perform the detailed analysis of the breast cancer and to assess diverse risk factors that could provoke the breast cancer. In fact, I was not aware of the scope of the problem of the breast cancer, but as I conducted the study, I found out that many women are vulnerable to the risk of the development of the breast cancer. In such a way, I identified key risk factors that provoked the development of the breast cancer.
Furthermore, the work on the project contributed to my communication with representatives of different cultures because I have to assess different risk factors of the prevention of breast cancer (Manser, 2009). I have managed to develop effective approaches to the communication with representatives of different culture to assess the risk of the development of breast cancer in patients. I have learned different communication styles and I have revealed substantial differences between cultures in the lifestyle and the attitude of representatives of different cultures to the problem of breast cancer and health at large (Jones & George, 1998). In fact, communication with representatives of different cultures was quite difficult because their traditions and mentality were different from mine and I had to be very careful not to be offensive in relation to them
On assessing numerous risk factors, which I have identified in the course of my work within the team, I revealed the fact that the breast cancer is a serious disease and there are numerous risk factors that can provoke the breast cancer easily. Therefore, I became aware of the importance of tracking the development of the breast cancer and its prevention. In fact, the elimination of risk factors facilitated the prevention of the breast cancer, while the prevention of the breast cancer is consistently more efficient than its treatment.
Reflection on my learning
In such a way, the course of the Live Project, I have managed to make a considerable progress in the development of my professional skills and abilities. For instance, I have learned to communicate and interact with people representing different cultural groups. This experience is very important for me. In addition, this experience helped me to develop different communication styles, which I can apply while working with representatives of different cultural groups. The diversity of communication styles is very helpful because it helps me to communicate effectively with different people. At the same time, I have learned the importance of the cultural background of individuals for the communication because people with different cultural background prefer different communication styles. For instance, Americans are open and tend to informal communication style, while some individuals of Asian origin manifested the high degree of formality of the communication which is the norm for their culture.
Furthermore, due to the Live Project, I have become aware of the breast cancer as a life threatening disease that may affect many patients. In fact, I did not pay much attention to the problem of the breast cancer in the past but now I am fully aware of risks of the development of this health problem and I am conscious of the importance of regular examinations of women to diagnose breast cancer at the early stage of its development. This health problem affects many people, mainly women, who suffer from the best cancer and need the effective treatment.
In addition, I have managed to make a considerable progress in the course of the work on the Live Project. For instance, I have developed team work skills, organizational and communication skills that helped me to perform successfully in the team. In fact, these skills are very important for my professional development and they can help me in the future career.
Thus, the Live Project was very important in terms of my professional development. This project helped me to develop teamwork skills. Moreover, I developed my communication and organizational skills which may be very helpful in my future career. In addition, I have learned how to communicate with representatives of different cultures and developed effective communication styles. In such a way, the Live Projects helped me to improve my skills and abilities and expand my eyesight that may contribute to my consistent progress in my professional development.
