If you or a loved one has ever experienced an affliction that involves a hospital stay, you know that the hospital setting can be a very frightening experience. When a hospitalization is involved, it is not uncommon to feel as though you have lost all control. It is a setting where people feel helpless and immobile, while having no idea what is in store for their near future. Many patients, especially elderly people, upon admission to a hospital, will experience disorientation in their new environment and may become uncooperative (Grace.) This is when effective communication is needed the most.

Communication is an essential and constant exchange of information between the patient and health professional with full understanding occurring on both camps (The Joint Commission, 2010, p. 1). It is one of the major activities done by healthcare staff across diverse settings (Redfern, Brown, & Vincent, 2009). Research shows that communication breakdown is one, if not the leading cause, of medical errors (Kohn L., 1999). For instance, out of 258 malpractice claims which led to patient harm, nearly 25 % was due to failures in communication (Greenberg, Regenbogen, & Studdert, 2007). 61 % of 176 incident reports to the Australian Incident Monitoring Study in Intensive Care resulted from...

Couples also need to be honest, which can give couples a bond and develops trust. The elements of a healthy relationship are: being able to communicate,...

There is a sender and a recipient when we are endeavoring to communicate between us as individuals or groups. Communication is most renowned for information from a sender to a recipient. We should have effective communication when we are at an enterprise and individual level because we have to communicate with every person that we come in contact with.

Effective communication in its various forms is the substratum of crisis management. Internal and external communication is essential during times of crisis if a successful outcome is to prevail. In a crisis, people’s lives are often at risk, these are lives that can be lost or protected; however, their fate lies in the hands of information. A breakdown in communication during times of crisis will interfere in dispensing pertinent and time sensitive information to the target audience, thus placing them at a gross disadvantage in protecting their health. During a crisis, it can be extremely costly to falter in delivering accurate, detailed, and informative information.

Listening is a skill that requires active, rather than passive, participation to advance shared understanding and minimise misinterpretation. Lang, Floyd and Beine (2000) describe active listening as a skill that ‘focuses on attending to patients’ clues, ie, utterances and/or behaviors that are not explicit but may have special meaning and suggest unshared ideas, concerns, and expectations’. This essay will discuss how active listening strategies such as analysing and displaying non-verbal body language, clarifying meaning and accuracy, expressing understanding for the speaker’s feelings through empathy and silence contribute to effective communication by encouraging the speaker to convey...

1.0INTRODUCTIONOne way or another we are communicating - even if we say nothing at all. Whereas language seems to be the most obvious means of communication, much more information is communicated beyond the pure words that are exchanged during a conversation. Birdwhistell (1970) claimed that up to 65% of a message's meaning is communicated through non-verbal clues. Today, some researchers put the amount of information being transmitted non-verbally even higher. For example Fromkin and Rodman (1983) claim, that up to 90% of the meaning of a message is transmitted non-verbally.In the business world, the importance of non-verbal clues has not often been discussed extensively. Whereas...

Effective CommunicationExpressing Emotions AppropriatelyExpressing feelings, dealing with problems, and moving on can be a difficult challenge. This is particularly true in high stress environments. Aside from general responsibilities, this is further aggravated by the downsizing, restructuring, and multi-tasking that is occurring in many of today's businesses. The occasional expression of emotional behavior is not necessarily a negative thing except when it becomes so amplified or recurs so often that it prevents people from dealing rationally and productively with those around them. An expression of emotion...

Language barriers have been one of the identified causes of many health problems, including timely and appropriate care, exacerbating existing conditions, and precipitating new ones. In addition to culturally appropriate education, interpreting is one of the approaches commonly used to help bridge the language gap for patients and practitioners. Interpreters are bilingual individuals that provide simultaneous interpretation between patients and medical care providers who do not share a common language (Finke, Light, & Kitko, 2008). This finding suggests that a good relationship is essential for high-quality patient care. (Finke et al., 2008) use qualitative evidence from interviews with...

Have you ever wondered what the line is between crazy or sane? Is there a way, a definitive test, that can tell for sure whether or not a person is crazy? If you take the time to study psychology and specifically the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, you are sure to find out that you can easily be diagnosed with some level and type of mental disorder. This line of questioning is what begins, in my opinion, one of the best TED talks I have viewed. In his speech, Answers to the Psychopath Test, writer and filmmaker Jon Ronson takes the listener on an amazing journey that explores the strange and maddening world of psychopathy.
