Communication and Interpersonal Skills for Nurses
Good communication and interpersonal skills remain one of the enduring and fundamental characteristics of high quality nursing practice. However, these necessary skills are often overlooked and underdeveloped during training. This book provides student nurses with the essential information on communication and interpersonal skills. It clearly explores the core concepts and evidence-base, and examines communication issues within practice environments, health policy, education, culture, and diversity. It is practical and accessible, helping students to gain confidence in these skills and to realize their academic and professional potential. The book is linked to the UK's NMC Standards, the Essential Skills Clusters, and other relevant UK competencies. It is also packed with scenarios and activities to suit a variety of learning styles.
