Introduction Effective communication is a core clinical skill required for each and every doctor and patient. The word “communication” is defined as to “share, join, unite, or make understanding common” (Brindley & Reynolds, 2011). Being a good communicator is vital both for a healthcare provider and a patient, since the reason why patients often complain is the lack of effective communication (McCorry & Mason, 2011). Moreover, being able to communicate clearly does not actually mean to have a rich vocabulary or to use scientific terms and technical language, but effective communication skills are necessary for health care professionals to help their patients to be more adherent to medical recommendations and prescriptions (McCorry & Mason,

Evidence by charting can help to prevent liability in a malpractice suit. Lack of documentation can alter the nursing intervention, such as in the scenario which stated medication was not discontinued when the resident was at high risk for bleeding.
In the hospital there is continuously a chance of medical errors, “Chasing Zero” is the initiative to change that.

Often patients can misinterpret information that clinicians tell them especially where there is a language barrier present. When a clinician is giving medical information to the patient such as in the video ‘interpreting the message’ where the doctor tells the patient of possible treatment, Kelley (2015) argues that ensuring that the physician acts as a filter/conduit of information and assessment of risks and benefits is of utmost importance to patients. It is of equal importance for the healthcare professional to ensure that the patient understands and interprets correctly the information that is being relayed to them. If there is a language barrier present between a patient and their clinician interpretation is made more difficult and this can often lead to misinterpretation. Gregg and Saha (2007) describe language as “a simple shared system of grammar and words”.

Therefore, the mental health professional has to inform and explain to their client before therapy starts, about the limits of confidentiality, namely that it will have to break if the clients express any suicidal thoughts or attempt to harm themselves or another person.
