Critical debate 2.1: Reflection on communication - a TV interaction

Critical debate 2.1: Reflection on communication - a TV interaction

Think back to an interaction between a nurse (or nurses) and a service user and/or family members which you observed on in a TV drama, soap opera or documentary:

  • What did the nurse(s) do?
  • What was the purpose of the interaction?
  • What communication skills did they use during the interaction?
  • Was their communication facilitative or otherwise?

Now think about professional communication:

  • Did the interaction reflect this aspect of health communication?
  • Did their communication enhance collaboration and shared decision-making?
  • How did the service user and/or family member react?

On reflection and with the knowledge about communication you have already acquired, how might reflecting on this interaction enable you to transform your own collaborative communication style?

It is proposed that observing and reflecting upon interactions can aid the development of effective communication skills
