Recognition Session for Certified Oncology Nurses: Having a Ball: Including a Healthy Dose of Music, Laughter and Patient Inspiration (RB)

They are a trusted confidante and tender caregiver. In addition, nurses are increasingly being charged with taking larger leadership roles as well. They are truly the superheroes of health care (carrying magic wands that seem to fix everything!) for their patients.

Communication Pearls for Navigating Difficult Conversations (219)

Communication is the root of many conflicts in health care and the cause of up to 60% of all hospital adverse events according to the Joint Commission (Mueller et al, 2018).
