Challenging Conversations with Clients (for Nurses)
There are some conversations with clients that can be potentially more difficult than others. We can't just avoid these conversations we do need to have them, but how can we make them easier? Understanding people's thought processes can be useful. How we approach a conversation can be very different especially if the owner holds a belief in doing something a certain way. This lecture will look at what we can say in these situations and how can we acknowledge these tricky situations.
