This exceptional book for nurses and nursing students guides the development of the comprehensive, professional communication skills to prevent errors that result in patient injuries and death. With a patient-safety focus, thorough coverage of communication and extensive, interactive ancillaries, it demonstrates how communication is tied to desired clinical outcomes.
The purpose of this book is to guide the development of comprehensive professional communication strategies in nursing students to prevent communication errors that result in patient injuries and death. In 2000, the Institute of Medicine reported in “To Err is Human” that harmful events result in 48,000 to 98,000 deaths per year, in minutes, that amounts to 1 death every 5–10 minutes. Health-care leaders all over the world were stunned. Few could believe what they were reading. Over the past 9 years continued analysis of harmful events by the Joint Commission in the United States led to the conclusion that communication errors are the root cause of 70% of sentinel events in healthcare settings. In recent years, accrediting agencies in the United States and Canada and the World Health Organization have developed goals and strategies to improve the effectiveness of communication among caregivers.
