General Discussion: Effective Communication
Communication with older adults, especially those with some level of neurocognitive impairment, can be quite challenging for all parties involved. Our goal as nurses must be to make communication better, not worse. To accomplish that goal, we need first to be aware of best practices and second to be willing to incorporate them.
For this discussion, begin by reading the article “Command Use and Compliance in Staff Communication with Elderly Residents of Long-Term Care Facilities.”
Although the authors situated this study in a specific situation, I argue that they reveal some common issues that affect all healthcare workers as they communicate with elderly patients.
After reading this article, choose one practice from the author’s suggestions to apply to your communication with your elderly patients this week. Write about how did or did not work for you. If you do not have an opportunity to care for an elderly patient this week, discuss what strategy you plan to adopt from the article.
