Nursing And Person Centeredness As A Communication Approach

Satisfactory Essays
Person-centeredness as a communication approach is important as it creates good relationships between the carer and cared for, creating outcomes that are more likely to be positive (Briggs et al., 2004, as cited in Dempsey, Hillege & Hill, 2014). The power of both the nurse and patient are upheld, safeguarding against mistreatment as power is not abused. It achieves this by establishing and maintaining trust and respect. By executing an attitude that is focused on the person, the values and beliefs of both is preserved as the personhood of the nurse if just as important as the patients.
