One of the biggest barriers can be language barriers which can lead to miscommunication which can lead to further problems with the wrong treatment or over-diagnosis. Some areas that physicians can have non-verbal communication is by watching facial expressions, tone of voice, sense of touch, sense of smell and body motions. A physician should be able to tell by personal physical reactions by signals and
These include economic and financial context, social class and peer pressure. It is extremely important to remember that healthy choices are difficult for each individual to make, but for those who do not feel in control of their environment or their personal circumstances, the choice can be even more challenging. It is likely that individuals suffering with a disability or poor mental health, low on money, unemployed or living in poor or temporary accommodation will be faced with this more challenging decision. For these individuals, it is vital that empowerment is used in order to enable them to feel that they can express any concerns they have and to gain the appropriate knowledge and skills required in order to address the issues they face. Empowerment will attempt to address the wider factors which could potentially have an influence on poor health for an individual, or a community, as opposed to just looking at the specific health concerns.
Sometimes these feelings are unreasonable but they can be justifiable. If this is the case, we must take a look at the communication process and take corrective action. The last step is responsiveness. This goes hand in hand with availability. From a patient and their family’s perspective, nurses do not have good responsive skills.
The actions and aids I supply for communication needs should benefit not just the individual, but the group of service users as a whole, and encourage interaction, inclusion, and social contacts. Regular reviews should be performed, to ensure that communication techniques and aids, are still adequate and addressing the individuals communication needs. Different groups who may have communication support needs could include: * A client may have suffered a stroke, resulting in dysphasia. As a result, they may become frustrated and angry. * A client may be suffering from confusion, either temporarily because of an acute medical problem, or as a result of dementia.
Explain Why it is Important to Observe an Individual’s Reactions When Communicating With Them This is particularly important as a service user could be hard of hearing and require visual aids or require you to speak loudly and slowly to ensure they can understand. They may require you to speak clearly and may need to rely on lip reading to understand you. Some service users may need more time to be able to understand and answer you. Identify Barriers to Communication • Sensory barriers – most commonly visual or hearing impairments • Slang/Jargon – some service users will not be familiar with slang terms or technical ‘jargon’ and therefore this should be taken into consideration • Environmental settings – if there is too much noise around, or if you are asking a service use to read instructions there could be inadequate writing etc • Physical barriers - trying to communicate through closed doors etc • Cultural barriers • Language
These cultural differences may impact the “values, beliefs, world views, nonverbal behavior, language, and how to have relationship with others” (Chitakornkijsil, 2010 p. 7). This paper will also explore why these deficiencies in transnational organizations exist. Finally, this paper will explore methods to help ameliorate the deficiencies and improve cross-cultural communication. Challenges of Communication in Cross-cultural Relationships Chitakornkijsil (2010) has indicated that communication with diverse cultural populations is
1.2 Explain how effective communication affects all aspects of own work Effective communication affects all aspects of my work. If I am not communicating effectively with the individuals that I support, it may lead to a poor therapeutic relationship. This means that if I need the individual to undertake certain tasks, if the communication is poor, they may not understand what I am asking of them. This in turn my lead to tasks not being undertaken that are for their general health and well-being. This means that they may end up unwell.
There are many myths about mental illness and psychiatric disabilities that feed negative stereotyping and discrimination (Kaplan 2007). Due to this, people suffering from mental illness or psychiatric disabilities may be unwilling to seek treatment because they do not want to be stereotyped or discriminated against. 3. What are the benefits of a person-centred approach as compared to institutionalisation? In person-centred nursing, the relationship between the nurse, the patient and others important to the patient is paramount (Crisp & Taylor 2009, p.74).
Although the scheme might solve our problems for waiting in line to see a specialist, is still has some downfalls. There are a few challenges that can cause a problem to this scheme. The first of the few challenges is that patients may get confused due to too many professional opinions at one time. The patient may find it hard to decide on which treatment they should apply to encounter their health problems. Figure shows patient confused A patient with various illnesses would have many diagnosis and treatments to go through with which other than confusing the patients, it will also increase their treatment timeline.
As therapist we need to understand clients who seek treatment for help for these conditions, fears are often restricting their life often can appear inexplicable to the rational mind. I will also talk about the role the subconscious plays. Stress, anxiety, phobias and habits can be related. Stress causes anxiety and vice versa. Stress can cause a habit as with smokers.
