Staying Cool Under Fire: How Well do you Communicate
RD344-60 | 1.0 CPEU • CHES344 | 1.0 CECH
by Maureen Habel, MA, RN
Working in the healthcare field requires outstanding communication skills. Communication, the transfer of understanding from one person to another, is the basis of the nurse-patient relationship. Skillful communication is essential for clinical practice and team building and for maintaining a satisfying work climate. In fact, the ability to communicate effectively is one of the most important areas in which healthcare professionals need to be experts. As healthcare providers, we encounter distressed people daily and need to find ways to relate that can help relieve their distress without upsetting us. All health professionals must be prepared to deal with the negative emotions expressed by patients, family members and colleagues as well as with their own response to anger and distress.

Most people and many clinicians are surprised when they hear that “exercise doesn’t help you lose weight.” It’s a common headline in the popular press … and it’s partially accurate. Modern lifestyles make it hard for adults to be physically active enough to counteract the abundance of easy calories we encounter multiple times a day. This webinar will equip learners with information and strategies they can use to coach and support clients to move more and be more active to prevent weight gain and to lose weight once they have gained it.
