Effective communication in patient care is central to Quality Health Outcomes. Communication failure is one of the principal causes of Medical Errors leading to life threatening consequences.

The education curriculum of the doctors and nurses focuses primarily on the clinical and technical skills. To work as a team and deal with patients one requires all together a different set of skills like Communication skills, interpersonal skills, management skills. Incidentally none of the education program addresses these skills.

Even Patient satisfaction greatly depends on the communication skills of the health care providers. Poor communication leads to disappointment, frustration and hostility among the patients and their associates. This is what has led to increased conflict in healthcare and strained doctor- patient relationship.
