Description : Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Health - Nursing Science - Geriatric Care, grade: 86.3%, James Cook University, course: Bachelor of Physiotherapy, language: English, abstract: The utilisation of effective communication skills by health professionals serves as a crucial aspect in the delivery of quality healthcare and has been proven to improve coping, mitigate medical errors and ultimately increase treatment adherence. Successful therapeutic communication is achieved through the appropriate use of verbal and non-verbal mechanisms in conjunction with careful consideration of differences in communicative abilities, cultural orientation, social backgrounds and personal beliefs. Communication barriers frequently identified between health professionals and people with dementia (PwD) have been shown to significantly impact their quality of life, treatment effectiveness and progression of their condition. Dementia is characterised by a progressive decline in memory function along with reasoning, expressive and comprehension abilities. Although the prevailing symptoms pose challenges to communication from health professionals, adopting a strength orientated approach by exploiting the many communication abilities retained by PwD allows the development of strategies to overcome existing barriers. The following report aims to examine the effectiveness of two communication skills, vocabulary and visual aids, in facilitating the provision of quality healthcare for PwD.

Description : This evidence-based text brings together the theory and practice of palliative care. It examines at all aspects of palliative care i.e. psycho social, spiritual and physical in a highly practical way. The evidence base for cancer care has been developed within the Hospice Movement over the past 50 years and, in the main, it transfers across to patients dying of diseases other than cancer. The book addresses the palliative needs of any patient with any disease in any care setting, which gives it a generic approach. This is in line with current government directives. Contributions to care and treatment are considered in a multidisciplinary and complementary way.
