Good interpersonal skills show the patient that career is relaxed and cool which helps the patient to relax and come with his or her problem easily. Effective communication and good interpersonal in health and social care helps in forming good and safe environment for patient and other people.

Proper communication skills can decrease stress related to the miscommunication of ideas. It has been shown that “communication plays a key role in the diagnosis, care and treatment of patients” (Khademi et al., 2021). Continuing with the angry family member scenario, the nurse should encourage the family members to express their feelings and the nurse should acknowledge what has been discussed. This shows that the nurse is displaying positive, interpersonal communication by providing compassion and active listening.
When taking care of a patient with a chest tube it is important to assess the patient lungs sound, breathing effectiveness by pulse oximetry and pain, if patient is in pain administered pain medication as prescribed. It is important for the nurse to educate the patient about deep breathing exercise, cough, and how to use an incentive spirometry. It is essential for the dressing to remain intact according to the Dr. order or per facility policy. The site needs to be monitored for any sign and symptoms of infection or excessive bleeding.
Subsequently, more emphasis is placed on the importance of expanding patients’ knowledge of the treatment that they are to receive and how to refine their self-care and management for the future. This can potentially improve the day-to-day lives of both the patient and medical staff. As the well-known Chinese proverb states: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a
Communication is described as the interchange of information, thoughts, and feelings between individuals using dialog or other methods (Kourkouta, & Papathanasiou, 2014). Communication between patients, nurses, and other healthcare professionals can influence the patient outcome subsequently, understanding what establishes an effective communication will be beneficial for nurses and other healthcare professionals. Having the skills to articulate efficiently exists beyond having verbal skills. According to Wright (2012), to establish effective communication, a nurse should develop the use of nonverbal cues such as body language, demonstrating active listening skills to facilitate assurance that the interaction remains successful, and having
This theory was made by Michael Argyle (1925- 2002), who was a social psychologist. In the late 1960s he studied social skills, body language, non-verbal communication and interpersonal behaviour. In this study, he found that non-verbal signals can be much more important and useful than verbal communication when trying to trigger peoples’ attitudes and feelings. His research showed and found that the stronger the relationship between the people communicating so with close friends for example the much better eye contact. However, when the relationship is not very strong so when speaking to a stranger people don’t have very good eye contact and they tend to look away when talking.
Peplau (1988, cited by Betts, 2002, in Kenworthy et al, 2002) argues nursing as an interpersonal process. Betts (2002) argues that effective communication is intricate and obscure. Both the nurse and the patient are distinctive individuals, and they both bring with them their perceptions, values, interpretations and experiences to the interpersonal process. To achieve trust, the nurse must use openness, honesty and effective communication
Therapeutic communication is an interaction between a nurse/ healthcare worker and a patient that helps advance the physical and emotional health of the patient by using verbal and nonverbal communication. Therapeutic communication is an active process. This communication is an important part of building a healthy interpersonal relationship, explains "Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing" .Nurses, mental health professionals and other health care professionals use therapeutic communication to educate the patient or to elicit information for analysis. The nurse uses various strategies to help the patient express their ideas and feelings in a manner that establishes respect and acceptance. This, in turn, enhances the patient 's comfort levels, encourages a feeling of safety, and increases their trust in the nurse.
Imogene King: Theory of Goal Attainment INTRODUCTION Imogene King has made a lasting impact on the profession of Nursing, but surprisingly Nursing was not her first passion. Her passion was in teaching, but fortunately for the nursing community, King’s uncle, the town surgeon, offered to pay for her Nursing degree, an opportunity that she could not pass up (Hanink). She went on to receive her diploma in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing Education, Master’s of Science in Nursing, and finally her Doctorate in Education. It is because of King’s passion for both teaching and nursing that her first job after receiving her doctorate, was a teaching position, where she was also part of a committee that developed one of the first master’s of
The key to establishing a trusting relationship is the integration, usage, and mastery of therapeutic communication skills (Belcher & Jones, 2009).Due to the high importance of effective communication in mental health nursing, it is essential in therapeutic interventions. (Peplau, 1952) states that effective interpersonal skills are central to a mental health nurse’s ability to form a sound therapeutic alliance and to the role of mental health nurses. Excellent interpersonal aptitudes are what every mental health nurse needs to communicate effectively with clients. Active listening is more than just hearing what the client has to say, nurse must be actively engaging with the client, physically, emotionally and mentally. Effective listening is therefore a cognitive, behavioural and an affective process (Arnold and Underman Boggs,
LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE EXHIBITED BY HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL IN NURSING PRACTICE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE LEVEL OF KNOWLEDGE EXHIBITED BY HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL IN NURSING PRACTICE. The significance of knowledge exhibition by a health care professional in nursing practice cannot be over emphasised It makes the beneficiaries of health care services to have confidence in the ability of the care provider to satisfy their care needs. Having sufficient knowledge also build confidence in the nurse while discharging his or her duties. When the nurse exhibit or brings his/her knowledge to bare in the discharge or his/her duties, there is very likelihood that the desired effect of care will be produced.
A patient and nurse interact and communicate and form an interpersonal system that is affected by situational factors in the environment (Alligood, 2013). Alligood (2013) also identifies the fundamental concepts of this theory as: perception, communication, interaction, transaction, self, role, growth and development, stress/stressors, coping, time, and personal space. These come from the personal and interpersonal system concepts. While the personal and social systems effect patient outcomes, the system that seems to have the biggest influence on this is the interpersonal system.
According to Patterson & Krouse (2015), It is important to transfer the message in a good way, for that the communication skills is one of the most important basic skills of nursing leadership. More than that, communication in nursing can make their job efficiently and help them to communicate with a wide range of people, including the patient, patient 's family, and healthcare providers. However, unlike bad communication, which increases nursing staff problem and can lead to worsening the patient health condition, a good communication saves time and reduces the problem of nursing staff in resaving and deliver the right information. Furthermore, communication is not only talking with the patient it’s also listening to what the patient 's family and healthcare providers are saying to collect more information that helps the nurses to save lives. In this paper, I will reflect my communication that goes well with one patient.
The author highlights how vulnerable patients will give their trust to nurses, they should begin their relationship with a rapport (Price, 2017). “Patients often feel vulnerable and there can be an imbalance of power between the nurse and the patient; similarly, patients who are receiving treatment in hospital can find themselves in an unfamiliar environment” (Price, 2017). In this situation the client was degraded, there was an imbalance of power. The client had an unfamiliar caregiver, creating confusion and anxiety. To create a therapeutic relationship trust must be created, it requires effective communication, honesty, and respect.
