Neuroscience tells that each human being have a different and unique way of communicating, speaking, and interacting, and that humans have different experiences of conflicts that allows one human to connect with the other (Teitelbum, 2016). Having the power to communicate with one another is a privilege, but being able to connect and speak from the heart is a gift. Nursing is a profession that allows a person to give comfort and care through an effective communication which bridges in healing a person’s body. Being unable to positively communicate with the patient causes an enormous struggle in building a relationship between the patient and the nurse. This paper will point out the positive and negative communication a nurse used to interact with her patient and will offer alternatives to improve the nurse-patient relationship.
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.
Therapeutic communication is a core factor in mental health nursing. It is important for a mental health nurse to have knowledge and interpersonal skills to communicate with a client who is experiencing a mental health disorder. Therefore, it allows a good relationship between a nurse and a client. Communication is an involvement with thinking, feeling and behaviour either its verbal, in writing or non verbal. Therapeutic communication is mostly client focused and is towards patient’s “goal directed”. Therefore, it is essential for a nurse to review any relevant medical histories or clinical data regarding the client before an assessment and by talking to other caregivers’ information can be collected as a result of any arising or concerning
According to Julia Wood (2004), “communication is a systemic process in which individuals interact with and through symbols to create and interpret meanings. However, Sheppard (1993) suggests that, in the nurse–patient relationship, communication involves more than the transmission of information; it also involves transmitting feelings, recognizing these feelings and letting the patient know that their feelings have been recognized (M, 1993)”. It is a two way process. The patient conveys their fears and concerns to their nurse and helps them make a correct nursing diagnosis.
Introduction Therapeutic communication is the interaction between a nurse and patient, which focuses on the physical, sociological and psychological state of the patient. The nurse line of duty is expected to have multiple of interactions with patients and to be unreserved to them. There are several of ways to communicate effectively to improve the relationship between the nurse and patient. With this, nurses are able to comfort the client and their family members when disclosing information severity of the illness or injury. Allowing them to know what is going happening, rather than keeping them uninformed causing the families to assume and constantly guessing it to be much worst than it originally is.
To provide the best care for the patient, the nurse must overcome these barriers and practice good patient-centered communication. So, with good communication, the nurse can express empathy for the patient, promoting an atmosphere of healing and comfort. With good communication, the nurse can properly educate her patient, leading to better care in the hospital and in the home. With good communication, the patient feels well cared for, and the patient feels confident that the nurse is on his side
5 NURSING PROCESS The nursing process is a series of organized steps designed for nurses to provide excellent care. Learn the five phases, including assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing, and evaluating. 5:1 Personnel Context As a nurse can make a huge difference in the health of my patients by many methods.
I experienced no moment of divine intervention, nor followed the example of a respected relative’s career, my career development decision making was based on a gradual recognition that nursing would be the perfect vocation for me. I have come to realise that nurses are faced with considerable emotional and professional demands, taking responsibility for the quality of people’s lives, which can be seen as a major challenge. I believe I am a person who welcomes, enjoys and would embrace this challenge. My main source of inspiration to become a nurse comes from an innate desire in making a positive difference in people’s lives. I am fascinated by all aspects of nursing and I want to go on to expand my knowledge and develop my transferable skills and ability in caring for others.
Making a difference I started my health care career as a nursing assistant at the young age of 16 years-old perusing the dream of one day becoming a nurse. At that time, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into and what it meant to be in the health care. I have been able to touch and impact so many different people’s lives throughout the last 6 years from patients and residents to their family members. Sometimes not even realizing that I was changing someone’s life. Although I’ve helped hundreds of people there is one person that will I will always remember.
While understanding communication between nurses is important, similarly, communication is also important to the nurse and other disciplines. I was able to witness effective communication between disciplines that focused on the patients’ health. One example of this was pertaining to a patient in the ICU room. The respiratory therapist discussed the patient’s current situation with the hospitalist. The nurse I was shadowing used successful communication with the CNA on duty to help assist with the patient’s current needs at that particular time.
The one person who always told me I can do whatever I wanted in life was my mom. My mom was my number one supporter, and always told everyone how excited she was for me to fulfill my dreams of becoming a nurse. My mom would always tell me “Sam all your dreams can come true if you just believe in your self”. The days I questioned myself, and thought to myself is nursing really for me, I always thought of those exact
Being a nurse is not always as easy and picture perfect as people paint it to be. A nurse is expected to act perfectly professional, even when tears, anger and all-around emotions are begging to come out. A nurse must always be the one that has their life together, especially when others do not. They are there to be the ones to hold and care for others in desperate times of need. Nurses are expected to be more than just a nurse, but rather an advocate, caregiver, support system and professional.
There are many components when it comes to nursing. My shared thoughts about it are having a high competency level of knowledge and experience to care for patients, developing a healthy relationship between the nurse and patient, bringing up ways to improve the scope of nursing,etc. I'm not a nurse at the this moment,
The first part of the training module focuses on the therapeutic relationship/attending behaviors. This focuses on a client-centered therapeutic approach and the notion that the client is the ‘expert’ and not the SLP. This part of the module also places emphasis on listening instead of talking, using a variety of nonverbal behaviors, and the importance of “clinical silence”. The module provided strategies to improve nonverbal communication such as maintaining a relaxed, but slightly forward body position.
Nurses must make sure our patients nonverbal and verbal behaviors match, so they receive the proper treatment and care. The messages must be clear to the providers, in order for patients to receive quality patient care and satisfaction. . When nonverbal signals match up with the words, they increase trust, clarity, and rapport. When they don’t, they generate tension, mistrust, and confusion (Jeanne Segal,
