Respect For Professional Communication In The Oncology Department By Nurses
Theoretical background: Communication and its process between the oncology patient and the nurse must be maintained at a professional and respectful level. By choosing the right method of communication, she helps the patient in emotional distress with the expression of empathy and support in coping with the disease, and she does not get into emotional events. Methodology: For the theoretical part we used the descriptive method of data collection and for the research part the survey technique. Anonymous and comparable questionnaires were personally distributed among nurses employed in various oncology departments at the University Medical Center Maribor and among patients hospitalized in the oncology department. Results: The obtained results show a high share of respect for communication and autonomy both by hospitalized oncology patients in relation to nurses and by nurses in relation to hospitalized oncology patients. Discussion: The data obtained are satisfactory. An optimal view of mutual communication and strengthening it gives people hope for successful treatment, and effective communication can bring benefits to both the patient and the nurse through the emotional burden of those involved in the treatment process.
