Abstract

Communication with patients is not only verbal. Non verbal expressions and silences are also forms of communication. As future nursing professionals we should learn abilities and skills to accurately interpret what the patient wants to express, even when words are absent.

To provide integral care it is important to establish a trustful and helpful relationship between patient and nurse where true dialogue, careful listening, clear and comprehensive terminology make easy communication possible to timely identify and satisfy the patient’s needs.

This article tries to demonstrate through an academic nursing practice how important is the establishment of an adequate communication with the patient grounded in the ethical principles warranting the nursing care

Key Words: Communication in health, empathy, nursing care, patient-nurse relationship
