Part of nurses' unique and challenging role in healthcare settings is engaging in difficult conversations with patients. Effective communication is essential to establish a successful nurse-patient relationship, put the patient at ease and promote better interactions. A reflective approach to care can help nurses to learn from experience and use this knowledge to communicate bad news to patients in a sensitive and timely manner.
