Good communication between nurses and patients is essential for the successful outcome of individualized nursing care of each patient. To achieve this, however, nurses must understand and help their patients, demonstrating courtesy, kindness and sincerity. Also they should devote time to the patient to communicate with the necessary confidentiality, and must not forget that this communication includes persons who surround the sick person, which is why the language of communication should be understood by all those involved in it. Good communication also is not only based on the physical abilities of nurses, but also on education and experience.
Patients with cancer can easily become overloaded with information about diagnosis, prognosis, treatments and side effects. One o f a nurse’s most important roles is to help patients and their families make sense of this, providing support and information through their cancer journey. However, many barriers exist, including the nurse’s own knowledge limitations, time constraints and the patient’s engagement with the nurse. This paper uses critical reflection to evaluate an incident from clinical practice involving a patient with prostate cancer suffering from a distressing side effect o f treatment: urinary incontinence following a transurethral resection o f the prostate (TURP).The paper examines nurse-patient communication, and evaluates how nurses can use communication strategies to minimise patient distress. Practical approaches to managing urinary incontinence are also discussed. This paper demonstrates that critical reflection is a valuable learning process that can alter clinical nursing practice to provide the best care for people with cancer.

As health care workers, there are many reasons why our minds are full. Along with the usual work-life balance struggles, we have responsibilities towards our patients. Caring for our patients when they are at their greatest periods of vulnerability is an absolute privilege. Sometimes we can forget, that in order to be able to look after our patients responsibly, we need to find coping mechanisms for our stress.
Perioperative nurses recognise that family members experience increased levels of anxiety during the wait for a relative undergoing a surgical procedure. It is often during this time that little or no meaningful communication occurs between family members and health professionals. It has been suggested that a structured information intervention has the potential to increase communication between families and health care professionals as well as decrease family members' anxiety.
Underpinning nursing informatics research is the notion that nurses must be involved in the development and testing of emerging technologies, not just be passive users of 'black boxes'.
