Client-provider communication is challenging! Nurses are continuously challenged to communicate with clients about multiple issues, and often this is in the context of limited time in which to communicate. Additionally, some clients complain that they are not being heard by nurses and other healthcare providers. This course will provide registered nurses with a toolbox of two-way communication skills that can be practiced and used in the care of childbearing families, with application to other care areas, as well.
