This book focuses specifically on the importance of communication and communication skills in effective nursing practice. Being able to communicate effectively within the multi-disciplinary team, using appropriate media from the range now available, written, spoken and electronic, is essential for nurse managers. This book addresses this issue directly, and provides both a theoretical framework and extensive practical guidance in this, arguably the most important management skill.
