Good communication is essential to teamwork, developing successful relationships with clients and colleagues, and managing conflict. It can also contribute to preventing many treatment related adverse events. Achieving effective communication can be particularly challenging when working in remote and rural areas with virtual teams, visiting services and working across cultures. Given the importance of communication in your role, it is worth investing some time in developing these skills, to help you communicate effectively.
