Background

Nurses work in a wide variety of healthcare settings and with a wide range of patients, many of whom might have severely impaired communication skills, either temporarily or permanently, and who might benefit from communication support.

Effective nurse-patient communication is very important in efficient care provision but nurses typically receive very little education or training in the use of supportive communication strategies.
