The ability to provide and elicit accurate information is one of the foundations of sensitive and successful healthcare. In our multicultural society, effective cross-cultural communication is an essential component of good healthcare. Communication is not limited to the articulated word. Physical gestures and tone of voice provide context and add meaning to verbal communication. In some cases, nonverbal cues may even contradict what is said. The development of trust and integrity facilitates a positive relationship and improves communication. In this course, you will explore the key elements of communication, learn how to establish a rapport with your patients, and identify the role of interpreters in the healthcare setting. In addition, you will analyze the components of both verbal and nonverbal communication. (70 minutes)
