Introduction

Unit 1 - Developing Effective Communication in Health and Social Care Unit 2 - task 1 p1+p2 In health and social care setting, workers often have to communicate difficult or sensitive issues to clients. These clients may be venerable, stressed or in difficult circumstances. When we understand how the communication cycle works we can foresee these circumstances and plan the best way to communicate with these clients and to achieve the best outcomes for them. The communication cycle is made from eight stages. From someone having an idea and expressing it. To somebody receiving the message and understanding it. Here is a drawing of the communication cycle.

Another health and social care professional that may need to concentrate on their method of communication, is a social worker. For example, if they had to talk to a service user about a sensitive issue, then they would have to think about where the best place to have the conversation would be. Weather it was in an office, or a room in the service users house, it would have to be a quiet, light room that the social worker, and the service user would feel comfortable talking in. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 Holly Shute ...read more.
