Communication

A CPD article enhanced Rosalyn Kings ability to communicate with offenders in her care.

Abstract

The exchange of verbal and non-verbal messages in communication is vital in my role as a primary care nurse in a male prison. Nurses should use effective communication skills to encourage offenders to open up and discuss their problems and emotions.

The CPD article addressed the nature of effective communication and some of the barriers to it, emphasising the role of the nurse, the environment and the perceptions of the individual.
