Communicating, Connecting, Caring

About Communication

Communication between patients and practitioners is central to the provision of healthcare and millions of conversations and interactions occur every day.

Practitioners need to be able to communicate clearly and form caring, effective relationships with patients, families and colleagues in order to have a positive impact on healthcare outcomes and experiences.  This is essential in a person-centred healthcare system.
