Communicating in a healthcare setting with people who have hearing loss

Communicating in a healthcare setting with people who have hearing loss

Healthcare staff in provision of services rendered need to obtain information and give advice, and patients need to ask questions and share their concerns. Therefore, to provide a thorough service for hearing impaired patients, it is of paramount importance that their communication needs are acknowledged and addressed by those responsible for the providing healthcare service.

Social media is changing healthcare

Smartphones has made the internet pervasive and therefore social media practically become a global pastime. With an ever increasing reach, technological improvement has altered the landscape of healthcare as the professional and the service user is empowered by patients taking an active role in their own healthcare as they become more informed.

Every silver lining has a dark cloud and the use of social media if used inappropriately could jeopardise your professional registration. The NMC has drafted guidance/code to emphasise the importance of patient or people centred care.
