The effect on spreading dynamics induced by collective consensus is investigated in this paper, on the basis of epidemic model for spreading dynamics and phase synchronization model for collective consensus. The interaction between propagation and collective synchronization is explored by theoretical analysis and numerical simulation. We found that the spreading dynamics and synchronizations are highly affected with the increasing of coupling strength on sparse links between communities. With the level of collective consensus about awareness increasing, both oscillation amplitude and mean prevalence are suppressed, and the inter-community coupling strength have great effect on time spent on reaching consensus.
