Communicating with others is a basic human need and the foundation for all social interactions. When healthcare workers effectively communicate with those for whom they care, it helps patients feel less isolated and can improve their sense of wellbeing. Often, the effects of aging, illness, and disabilities can become barriers to effective caregiver-patient communication. Paying attention to another’s communication needs is one of the most important duties of any healthcare provider. When they understand how the communication process works and how to effectively send and receive message, healthcare workers are better able to meet the needs of those for whom they care.

La comunicación con otros es una necesidad básica del ser humano, y la base de toda interacción social. Cuando se logra una comunicacion efectiva entre el personal de salud y las personas de quienes cuidan, esto ayuda a los pacientes a sentirse menos aislados y aumenta su sensación de bienestar. Muchas veces, factores como la edad, padecimientos o discapacidades pueden representar barreras para que esta comunicación sea efectiva. Uno de los deberes más importantes del personal de salud es ser consciente de las necesidades de comunicación de una persona. Una vez que el personal entiende cómo funciona el proceso de comunicación y de qué forma enviar y recibir mensajes de manera efectiva, los trabajadores se vuelven mejores para cubrir las necesidades de todos los pacientes bajo su cuidado.
