Product description

Good communication is an essential part of delivering effective nursing care. Nursing students work in a variety of multicultural settings and therefore it is imperative that they fully understand their own cultural context and that of others. This text illustrates the important differences between cultures and how these differences can enhance practical nursing. Through the comprehensive use of case studies and interactive exercises, the book invites students to reflect on their own knowledge and skills about culture so that they can learn to communicate in a more effective and culturally sensitive way. All theory is applied to nursing practice to demonstrate how situations can arise and be dealt with appropriately whilst working on clinical placement. This text is written for students studying the CFP at Year 1. Communication will be studied either as part of a Professional Issues module, or Nursing Practice.
