Tip of The Week- Patient Communication

Patient communication is an important skill that nurses must possess in relation to effective assessment and providing care.It might be as simple as talking to the patient, asking them questions and waiting for the patient’s response but more than that, proper technique and observation on the part of the nurse will make the interaction more effective, make the nurse get more out of it and learn things about the patient maybe even more what they’re already telling to the nurse.

The first thing that nurses and nursing students should understand is how patient communication is defined and the concepts and theories revolving on patient communication. The factors affecting how effective our communication skills are and understanding the message conveyed to us by our patients and see beyond words is also important.
