9780199796823: Communication in Palliative Nursing

Communication in Palliative Nursing unites complementary work in communication studies and nursing research to present a theoretically grounded curriculum for teaching palliative care communication to nurses. The chapters outline the COMFORT curriculum, comprised of these elements: Communication, Orientation and opportunity, Mindful presence, Family, Openings, Relating, and Team communication. Central to this curriculum is the need for nurses to practice self-care.

Based on a narrative approach to communication, which addresses communication skills development holistically, this volume teaches nurses to consider a holistic model of communication that aligns with the holistic nature of palliative care. This work moves beyond the traditional and singular view of the nurse as patient and family teacher, to embrace more complex communication challenges present in palliative care -- namely, providing care and comfort through communication at a time when patients, families, and nurses themselves are suffering. In addition to collaborating with physicians, the nurse's role involves speaking with patients and families after they have received bad news and often extends to discussions of spiritual and religious concerns. This book covers communication theory, clinical tools, and teaching resources to help nurses enhance their own communication and create comfort for themselves, as well as for patients and their families.

Review:


"This book is clearly a treat to read and digest. As any nurse in palliative care knows, communication is the cornerstone for effective palliative care nursing. This text mentors the reader on how to be a mindful communicator. It explores the challenges faced every day in attempting to meet patients' and families' needs. A must read for any palliative care nurse!" -- Patrick Coyne, Thomas Palliative Care Program Clinical Director, Virginia Commonwealth University


"Communication is essential to effective palliative care nursing and this remarkable book skillfully guides readers through this process. The clear and effective writing by this distinguished team of authors make this an effortless read and the clinically authentic vignettes bring meaning to the message. We all strive for lucid and thoughtful communication, with patients, their families, our co-workers, and indeed with our own loved ones. This outstanding book empowers us all to meet this fundamental goal." -- Judith A. Paice, Director, Cancer Pain Program, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine


"This book is written specifically for nurses in palliative care, but should be considered as a resource for all nurses who communicate with patients and families. There are no other books on communication in palliative nursing that can be compared to this exceptional offering. It will be useful in the clinical setting, as well as the classroom, and should be considered a valuable part of every nurse's reference library." --Doody's Health Sciences Book Review
