The journey to becoming a nurse requires students to demonstrate effective communication skills with patients, carers and other healthcare professionals, based on sound evidence and apply these in a variety of care settings.Nursing: Communication Skills in Practicehas been specifically developed as a one stop shop of healthcare communication theory and practical skills for all aspects of the pre-registration course - in both the classroom and on clinical placement. The authors introduce essential communication and interpersonal theories before explaining how these can be applied therapeutically with patients and carers, professionally with colleagues and on health records, as well as how to overcome common challenges in practice. Practice examples, scenarios, and videos apply skills to a huge range of clinical settings and client groups so readers can easily see how to adapt their approach for different fields of practice and individual patient needs whilst basing decisions on a clear rationale. Useful for the entire course, the content reflects the NMC domain for communication and interpersonal skills and also addresses the student's experience of placement learning, presentations, assignments and personal development. Written in an easy to read, student friendly manner and accompanied by video, this text will help student nurses develop excellent communication skills so they are truly prepared for practice. Online material to accompany the book Videos: bring theory to life by demonstrating communication skills in action. Quizzesallow students to test their underlying knowledge and understanding. Scenariosgive students a chance to consider knowledge and apply their skills prior to placement or assessments. Practice exercisesand learning materials can be printed off to be used in placement with mentors to help students translate theory into practice and achieve their learning outcomes. Adviceand reflections from academics, clinicians and other students will give junior students the benefit of other's experience and tips on what works well.
