It is evident that she is aware of barriers to effective communication. Additionally, it is made apparent that communication skills are vitally and fundamentally important in clinical practice. When there is effective communication it creates positive health practices. The need for a therapeutic relationship (patient-centred) is to be the main focus of the student/nurse. The key success in this role is accurate assessment of the patient’s needs, abilities and commitment to meeting them with sensitivity.
Introduction Therapeutic communication is the corner stone of good practice and paramount to the provision of good care. Doheny et al.
