Good communication and interpersonal skills remain one of the enduring and fundamental characteristics of high-quality nursing and midwifery practice. This is despite major developments in our knowledge of scientific, technological and pharmacological health treatments. However, because communication is viewed as an implicit part of everyday life, the skills required for effective communication and appropriate professional interactions are often overlooked. This book provides student nurses with the essential information on communication and interpersonal skills. It clearly explores the core concepts and evidence base and is practical and accessible, helping students to gain confidence in these skills.
