Communication for Health Care Practice

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


In health care, effective communication results in the achievement of outcomes mutually determined by the client, significant others and health care teams. Effective communication is fundamental to establishing core principles and values that underpin team-based health care.

Communication for Health Care Practice provides nursing and health care students with advice to guide them through the varied health care environments they will encounter when working in clinical settings.

The book offers practical advice on topics such as: client-oriented communication strategies that advance client wellbeing; appreciation of the diversity and complexity of communication in health care organisations (including communication with professional and regulatory systems); communication within and across teams and, self-care to encourage maintenance of one's own emotional and physical wellbeing.

Drawing upon the experience of a respected nursing practice researcher and developer, Professor Amanda Henderson, Communication for Health Care Practice encourages students to relate good communication skills with optimal-level outcomes for clients.
