‘This is one text that I will definitely be recommending to my students. An excellent starting guide to communication and interpersonal skills, further supported by the NMC standards, which gives this text kudos and rigor.’
The book provides an excellent grounding in CIPS and relates this explicitly to nursing practice in an engaging and easy-to-read way. Content is linked to the 'Future Nurse' standards (2018) and is punctuated with useful activities for readers to help embed understanding.
This is a really practical guide to communication and interpersonal skills for those working in healthcare, with clear and appropriate examples of ways that barriers to communication can be overcome. The activities and opportunities for reflection are relevant and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this to student nurses.
Very beneficial to learning and teaching.
