Communication in healthcare is the process by which information is exchanged between individuals, departments, or organizations. If you consider it in terms of making connections, communication creates links between people and ideas. As a healthcare provider, you play an important role in creating and maintaining these links. Communicating effectively with other healthcare providers will help to ensure effective and safe care. In this course, you will learn about four techniques - SBAR, CUS, closed-loop communication, and I PASS the BATON - that can achieve this goal.
