(Solution) NR 451 Discussion Week 2: Communication and Influence…


NR 451 RN Capstone Course


Effective communication is a staple of our healthcare culture. Working with patients, peers, and interprofessional teams requires that nurses manage information and evidence toward influencing safe and positive patient outcomes.

Please address the following:

  • Describe caring attributes of the culture where you currently practice.
  • Which attributes stand out as having significant influence on patients, nurses, and other healthcare professionals?
  • How do you see effective communication relating to patient outcomes in this setting?
  • What is the evidence for this?


The palliative care unit, where I currently work primary goal is improving the overall quality of life of our patients and their families, especially those in critical and long-term painful conditions. Strong care-based culture with an emphasis on empathy and compassion is the mainstay of this unit. Given all the suffering that nurses and other caregivers in the unit experience, they also require as much support as they can get from the hospital in general and nurse managers in particular.

The most significant attributes here are among others on-staff client care provision (that is not necessarily curative), and corroborative communication. On-staff client care provision involves helping these patients manage their symptoms, understand what kind of resources are available to them, treatment options and how different choices would affect their value systems. ….please click the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $5
