Clear communication reduces stress and enhances comfort. In short, you are more effective. Your ability to appropriately communicate is an integral part of your skill set. Your words, your actions, and the surrounding environment influence those under your care in ways you may not even imagine. Your experience has taught you that stress can disrupt clear thinking, scramble short-term memory, and effectively sabotage interpersonal communication. Due to the importance of communication skills, more and more medical schools have, over the past decade, added this subject to their curricula. These innovative techniques are learnable. This book is meant to complement and enhance the hard skills you use daily on the job.
