Communication Skills in Nursing, Health and Social Care
- Bernard Moss - Staffordshire University, UK
Presented in a unique and easy-to-use dictionary format, this practical guide will help students and practitioners understand and apply the principles of effective communication. From the ‘how to’ practicalities through to challenges and honing existing skills, this book will ensure they have the confidence and knowledge to communicate skilfully and successfully in many different contexts and settings.
The new edition features:
Essential reading for anyone working in the helping professions for whom good communication skills are an essential part of their role.
This is a good resource for Health profession education programmes. It is well laid out and the presentation style has been created with learners in mind.
Professional communication information and activities/exercises facilitate application from theory to practice.
Very useful, easy to read and follow. Covers all the aspects relevant to the course. Students prefer on line copies.
Very easy to read text with all the right content. Brilliant for 1st and 2nd year health and social care degree programs.
Good layout for our learners and relevant for the course.
I will definitely adopt this for our pre registration nursing programme as a recommended resource. The range of topics and the style of presentation makes this a highly accessible and useful text to supports students' understanding of key areas of professional communication. The activities, exercises and additional reading helps with practical application of the concepts.
