The mnemonic SOLER is used to remind healthcare professionals that how to that Reducing proximity, maintaining eye contact and using open postures can show they are listening and concentration on what is being said, and making the speaker feel more comfortable (KRASEZWSKI & McEWEN 2010). Active listening often involves using paraphrasing, summarising verbally what a patient has said to ensure a mutual understanding of the messages send by the patient to the healthcare professional (WALKER 1990). However paraphrasing too often can suggest the healthcare professional finds the words the interviewee uses unacceptable, causing frustration (MOSS 2012). In an evaluation of my strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats I highlighted my understanding and use of paraphrasing and active listening as strengths and facial expressions, gestures and touch as weaknesses (Appendix 1). I created an action plan to develop my understanding and use of touch in practice (Appendix
A nurse needs to have good grammar in order to be well understood by others if you use slang while writing maybe a patient will not understand what you’re trying to say. Also when it comes to speaking in my profession you need to sound very professional otherwise it would sound as if you have no knowledge of what you’re speaking of whatsoever. When speaking to a patient you need to sound very professional and find the right words watch the audience your speaking to because not everyone understands the same way. Also editing skills are important because if you don’t write properly then a patient or the doctor will not be able to comprehend what it says so write out the whole word don’t leave it half way not everyone understands that. Use proper grammar at all times that way you will always have the right communication

Sometimes health simulators cause trainees to feel too safe in the hospital environment and when they are put in the real world, with real life crises, they are frozen because they have no clue what to do. On the other hand they do give the trainees a kind of self confidence that can only be gained through self accomplishment, which helps them more calm and seemingly professional in the real world. Whether or not health simulators are positive or negative is really an idea for you to gnaw on, maybe if you had more knowledge you could decipher the facts for yourself, and draw your own
Mattie Stepanek, American poet, once said, “Unity is strength…when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” When talking about doctors and patients, there needs to be wonderful things achieved: the solution to the patient’s ailment. But yet, there is little teamwork and collaboration in the process of finding a patient’s solution. Collaboration between the doctor and patient allows both the doctor and patient to solve the problem together, coming to a solution that uses both the doctor’s and patient’s skills, solves the issue effectively, and can help others in the future, giving it an advantage over when there is no collaboration. Collaboration between the doctor and patient allows the doctor and patient that integrates the skills of the doctor and patient. According to The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, while collaborating with Mr. MacGregor, Dr. Sacks tells him “[his spirit level] can be knocked out by Parkinson’s disease” (Sacks 73).

IntroductionClinical empathy is an essential element of quality care and is associated with improved patient satisfaction, adherence to treatment, and fewer malpractice complaints. It has been suggested that in contrast to models of “detached concern,” physicians who attempt to understand what their patient is feeling and communicate their concern achieve a number of valuable outcomes for their patients and for themselves . Empathy in medicine is challenging though, because doctors are dealing with the most emotionally distressing situations–illness, dying, suffering in every form–and such situations would normally make an empathic person anxious, perhaps too anxious to be helpful . This painful reality may take its toll on these individuals
Nice research and thanks for sharing your experience. Interprofessional team communication among clinician enhances effective collaboration while providing competent care. Competent care ensures safe practice, which also requires effective communication with colleagues and patients, assertiveness, respect, active listening and timeliness (Brock et al., 2013). Errors usually occur when professionals failed to communicate important information, or information that is communicated gets interpreted wrongly, or professional roles are not clearly defined. Hence, Team stepps becomes useful for providing combine training among professionals to improve communication and build a more cohesive team.
“Depression is an illness that occurs episodically and can be described adequately in medical terms (Kanter et al,2008).” This one reason as to why it is not perceived as a major problem, the fact that it comes and goes people see it as people making excuses to get out of doing things for example work or school. Sociology, Depression is a barrier that unless we start acknowledging it as a real illness, then we won’t be able to properly communicate and understand those who are suffering with this illness. Furthermore, Society does not grasp depression as a social problem, but rather a personal problem. One suffering through depression, because it is just them suffering it doesn’t have any impact on society. This is a false ideal that society has believed and fed through mass media.
Failing in service-user safety can sometimes be attributed to communication failure, however communication is one of the most important tools in preventing such failures. The ability to communicate effectively as a team stems from understanding the various professions in the team (Gluyas & Morrison, 2013). Understanding the various roles allows for an insight into how the healthcare system links together and the part each roles plays in provision of care. Additionally it aides in building trust and respect amongst team members (Gluyas & Morrison, 2013). This in turn can be linked to improved service-user safety, because it allows for role relation and see their part in the service-user care pathway.
Hello class, When taking patients reproductive history as a medical assistant I will stay very professional and respectful. Some patients might not feel comfortable releasing private information to you therefore you should assure them that whatever information they disclose to you will be use only for health reason. Make the patient feel comfortable. Some of the questions that you will ask them can make the patient feel embarrassed or uncomfortable because the patient doesn 't want for her private life to be known. Depending on the patient I will try to help them understand that what am asking is not to be nosy but to help the doctor better serve them.
