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.
On the second day of the interproffesional conference I was more confident in meeting with the other professionals as we had already broken the ice and we knew that we had some tasks to complete throughout the day needing our team work together and it was important that we worked well in order to complete the tasks to the best of our abilities. I have acknowledged that I need work on my confidence as I know that it is imperative that I can communicate effectively with other professionals throughout my career and am hoping that others are professional enough to not make me feel intimidated within my role Berry, D.

Following best practice within your work role; As a guidance to follow the best practice I use the Codes of Practice and Care Quality Commission`s outcomes from which I can learn more to improve my practice. Every time I care for a patient my goal is to provide a high standard of care or to make all the effort to do it even when is not possible. I try to smile and make a difference for the patient applying person-centred approach care. I know is not always possible to apply the person-centred approach but I make every effort to do it and when the patient is satisfied with the care has been received is a feel better. I know a care assistance can make a huge difference in the care of the patient and always the care assistant is the bridge between the patient-nurse-doctors and family as is more in direct contact with the patient.
