Communication is such a critical role when it comes to providing patient care in general. Health care providers and patients must be on the same page when it comes to implementing evidence-based practice. Some of the problems that someone may face is miscommunication. According tothe University of New South Wales (N.D.), some of the problems include language barriers and poor explanation, and unclear advices. They’ve added that the strategies to overcome these problems include the use of translators and communication skills training.Another barrier that may affect evidence-based practice is mistrust in research. According to Foster (2015), many health care providers tend to depend on their own experiences as they mistrust the research study behind evidence-based practice. In order to overcome this barrier, health care provides must be able to trust the research and keep an open mind. It has proven fromtime and time again that evidence-based practice is the best, recommended, and only practice that must be provided to patients. It is important for them to further gain knowledge as everything behind these studies have explanations that would certainly change their minds and trust the process.Duquesne University. (N.D.).
