Effective communication is one of the most fundamental tools of the nursing practice. Communication involves two parties the conveyor and the recipient, in which information is exchanged through personal and interpersonal mediums (verbal and non-verbal forms), allowing the message conveyed to be received and understood. Ultimately effective communication in healthcare reduces barriers constructed by language and cultural differences etc, creating a safe environment for the client in which they can actively participate in positive health-related behaviours. This explanatory synthesis will explore the concept of self- awareness in relation to therapeutic communication and how it significantly influences nurse-client rapports. It will also
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
In healthcare, nurse-patient communication involves giving out and obtaining information which allows the nurse to know the needs or problems and feelings of the patients. 3.1 Personal concept In order to achieve great outcome of individualized or holistic care of patients, effective communication between the nurses and patients is required.

The trustors qualities, skills and behaviour with gestures and body language indicating caring, attention, warmth and patience are key to develop a trusting relationship (Rortveit K. et al. 2015). Trust was associated with nurses taking time, sitting down and answering questions, showing interest and expressing concern as well as sharing experiences and emotions (Rortveit K. et al. 2015). Nurses who demonstrated a commitment to person-centred care were seen as trustworthy professionals (Thorpe G. et al. 2014). Trust may be associated with communication, such as nurses informing about the risk, maintain confidentiality and relating to patients as adults, acting as advisor or patient advocate, being engaged and providing assistance (Rortveit K. et al. 2015).

Nursing, a job that not only helps people, but touches their lives. I have wanted to become a nurse since I was 5 years old. Children always say what they want to be when they are little, but eventually change their minds. It has been 11 years since I decided my career, and I still have not changed my mind. I was lured into the nursing field because of the care nurses have towards their patients, it is more than a job.
“Shared governance, which gives nurses control over their professional practices, is an essential element of a professional practice nursing model, providing structure and context for health care delivery” (cite shared governance article). This allows each healthcare worker to have a voice in the decision making and encourage input that will expand the business and healthcare. The four principles of shared governance are equity, accountability, ownership, and partnership. Equity is a foundation that focuses on services, staff, and patients and is essential in providing safe and effective care.
The Purpose of The Theory The purpose of Henderson’s theory is to give the principles that help construct practice and to generate further nursing knowledge. Considering doing so, it helps nurses to understand their purpose and role in nursing in the healthcare setting. Henderson believes that the unique function of the nurse is to help the person sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (to a peaceful death) that he would do unaided if he had the strength, will or knowledge.
Compassion is showing care for others and displaying a positive attitude towards the care and concern of others. According to How does it really feel to be in my shoes? Patients' experiences of compassion within nursing care and their perceptions of developing compassionate nurse, "The importance of this relational aspect of compassion to the participants in this study cannot be overlooked when planning and implementing care. Compassion is a process that can be nurtured through attention to patient-centered assessment and planning of care. Patient centeredness is no stranger to nursing discourse, however, adopting this element to care and compassion is challenging in today's healthcare arena, especially when treating massively increased numbers of patients" (Bramley and Matiti, 2014).
Through effective engagement with the patient it can instil a sense of connection and in turn the patient will actively participate throughout the interview. Effectively engaging is ultimately the foundation for motivational interviewing. In order for patients to feel connected and comfortable, nurses must be open minded, compassionate as well as providing reassurance in order to create relaxed environment for patients to voice both positive and negative feelings in relation to behavioural change (Resnicow, K & Blackburn.

One ways to do that is by the “teaching back” or “show me” method. Having patient repeat to their care doctor or nurse until they do it correctly. This way it justified by the prospect of much better understanding and adherence (Juckett, 2013). It is also important to truly understand the culture when caring for the population. For the Hispanic population, many believed that using herbal medicine would help relieve all diseases.
Module 3 Discussion 1. Evaluate the motivational interview (MI). a. How did you feel during the interview? I chose to interview a neighbor, a 79 year-old, man who asked me previously about heath care matters. He specifically was interested in his “cholesterol” and A1C values.
Demonstrating ‘respect for patients’ values, preferences and expressed needs,’ is one of the eight dimensions of person centred care outlined by the Picker Institute (ref). Morgan and Yoder (2012) described ‘respectful care’ as being an attribute of person centred and while the author does not disagree with this idea of ‘respectful care’ being inherent to person centred care, the author believes that Slater (2006) more accurately describes dignity and respect as being antecedents of person centred care. These antecedents drive respect of personal values, individual needs and decisions, a consequence of which is an improved therapeutic relationship and health outcomes. The author considers this view of dignity, compassion and respect as antecedents
