Bridging the Communication Gap: The Pivotal Role of a Nurse
Communication is an essential element of quality care outcomes across a patient's care continuum from community to health care facility-based settings. Communication gaps with patients, families, caregivers and providers may yield serious consequences, affecting treatment adherence, medication administration, follow-up care and health care decision making. The registered nurse plays a pivotal role in care communication for provider visits, home visits or in between visits, and is best positioned to be an advocate for patients across settings. Participants in this speed session will be introduced to models for effective clinical care team communication and how some of these strategies can be deployed to avoid communication breaks with all parties involved in a patient's care.
