Chapter 24: Communication MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. Nurses who make the best communicators 1. Develop critical thinking skills. 2. Like different kinds of people. 3. Learn effective psychomotor skills. 4. Maintain perceptual biases. ANS: A Nurses who develop critical thinking skills make the best communicators. Just liking people does not make an effective communicator because it is important to apply critical thinking standards to ensure sound effective communication. Just learning psychomotor skills does not ensure that the nurse will use those techniques and communication involves more than psychomotor skills. Critical thinking helps the nurse overcome perceptual biases or human tendencies that interfere with accurately perceiving and interpreting messages from others. Nurses who maintain perceptual biases do not make good communicators. DIF: Remember REF: 317 OBJ: Describe aspects of critical thinking that are important to the communication process. TOP: Implementation MSC: Communication and Documentation 2. A nurse believes that the nurse-patient relationship is a partnership, and that both are equal participants. Which term should the nurse use to describe this belief? 1. Critical thinking 2. Authentic 3. Mutuality 4. Attend ANS: C Effective interpersonal communication requires a sense of mutuality, a belief that the nurse-patient relationship is a partnership, and that both are equal participants. Critical thinking in nursing, based on established standards of nursing care and ethical standards, promotes effective communication and uses such standards as humility, self-confidence, independent attitude, and fairness. To be authentic (ones self) and to respond appropriately to the other person are important for interpersonal relationships but do not mean mutuality. Attending is giving all of your attention to the patient. DIF: Understand REF: 317 OBJ: Identify significant features and therapeutic outcomes of nurse-patient helping relationships.

TOP: Planning MSC: Communication and Documentation 3. A nurse wants to present information about flu immunizations to the elderly in the community. Which type of communication should the nurse use? 1. Interpersonal 2. Public 3. Transpersonal 4. Small group ANS: B Public communication is interaction with an audience. Nurses have opportunities to speak with groups of consumers about health-related topics, present scholarly work to colleagues at conferences, or lead classroom discussions with peers or students. Intrapersonal communication is a powerful form of communication that occurs within an individual. Transpersonal communication is interaction that occurs within a persons spiritual domain. When nurses work on committees, lead patient support groups, form research teams, or participate in patient care conferences, they use a small group communication process.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
