Communication as a clinical skill: a challenge in the delivery of safe and effective patient care

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Communication in clinical practice has been the focus of linguistic, psychological, and sociological research for half a century, yet there is still so little emphasis on using that research to improve communication in clinical practice. In this article, we urge for a re-positioning of communication as a key clinical skill, along with a stronger reliance on communication research evidence and collaboration with experts in studying and teaching these skills.
