If you want a snapshot of basic information related to communication skills for nursing, this book fits the bill.

It is easy to read, engaging and informative, and each chapter provides students with some useful theory linked to practice.

Activities challenge students to think about their own skills and abilities and how their communication affects others. Scenarios encourage the application of learning to patient care and each chapter ends with questions that test students’ knowledge, consolidate their learning and prompt revision.

Readers working through the chapters will acquire a practical knowledge of models, methods, barriers and challenges related to communication in practice and how to communicate effectively when assessing patients and delivering care. While it is not exactly clear how students were involved in developing the book as the authors emphasise, it is suitable for undergraduate nurses who are required to develop their communication skills to enhance patient care.
