    Every essay must have an introduction and thesis statement. This introduces the reader to your topic of discussion and gives a brief overview of what you are going to talk about in the essay. It should not be more than two paragraphs long. In this, a definition of professional medical communication should be given. The communication is both verbal and non-verbal and either between staff and patient, between staff and or between staff and the outsiders on a patient.

    Confidentiality is the first aspect. There exists a professional privilege between the patient and the doctor which obliges the professional from not discussing the patients’ condition unless it’s with his consent. Most institutions have different and several practitioners who are likely to freely discuss a patients’ condition with a view of finding the best mode of medication; which should not be deemed as a breach of confidentiality.

    Effective communication
    Medical practice flourishes on precise communication. When handling a patient, there is need to make sure that communication on the type of treatment and medication given is precise and adhered to strictly. Any slip up might cause to irreparable damage.

    Common barriers to effective healthcare communication
    1. Language and jargon
    2. Personal values, expectations and bias or preconceived opinions
    3. Personality differences between the parties.
    4. Generational, class, cultural or creed differences.
    5. The nature and or complexity of a medical situation.
    6. Levels of qualification, preparation ad status.
    7. Management and personality issues.
