Lost in translation: The nurse as a conduit
from By Keith Carlson
As nurses, we are trained to bridge the gap between physicians and patients. In fact, we often serve as conduits of information, translating medical jargon into lay terms while simultaneously maintaining the integrity of the original message. Nurses are in the perfect position to leverage their communication skills in the service of patient outcomes, and that ability to communicate clearly is one of our many individual and collective gifts.
