    2. 2. INTRODUCTION Communication is a dynamic, reciprocal process of sending and receiving messages. Communication is more than the act of talking and listening. From the first cry of a newborn to the whisper of a person who is dying, the primary purpose of a communication is to share information and obtain a response. People use communication to meet their physical, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual needs
    3. 3. DEFINITION • Communication is ‘any act by which one person gives to or receives from person information about that person’s needs desires, perception, knowledge or affective states’. Communication may be intentional or unintentional, may involve conventional or unconventional signals, may take linguistic or non-linguistic forms and may occur through spoken or other modes.
    5. 5. INTRAPERSONAL COMMUNICATION • It is conscious internal dialogue, sometimes known as self-talk. It is language use or thought internal to the communicator. The individual becomes his or her own sender and receiver, providing feedback to him or herself in an ongoing internal process. It can be useful to envision intrapersonal communication occurring in the mind of the individual in a model which contains a sender, receiver and feedback loop.
    6. 6. INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION • It is communication between two or more people. • Face to Face conversation between two people is the most frequent form of interpersonal communication. • Nurses use interpersonal communication to gather information during assessment, to teach about health issues to explain care and to provide comfort and support.
    7. 7. GROUP COMMUNICATION • It is interaction that occurs among several people. • Small group communication occurs when you engage in an exchange of ideas with two or more individuals at the same time.
    8. 8. PUBLIC SPEAKING • It is a unique form of group communication. Generally the speaker addresses a dozen to hundreds of people, and varying degrees of interaction occur. • Speaker may deliver a speech talk directly with a group of audience members or have open discussion with the group. It is at the heart of our economy, society and politics. • Nurses often engage in public speaking to educate groups of people about health issues
    9. 9. THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS • Communication requires a sender, a message, a receiver and a response or feedback. • Communication is a two-way process involving the sending and the receiving of a message. Because the intent of communication is to elicit a response the process of ongoing; the receiver of the message then becomes the sender of a response, and the original sender then becomes the receiver.

(E.g.:- care giver, teacher, counsellor, leader, manager, and patient advocate)
    39. 39. MODEL PRESENTING HUMAN TO HUMAN RELATIONSHIP • The model represents the interaction between the nurse and patient or recipient of her care. • The major characteristics of this experience are that the nursing need of the individuals is met. • The half circle at the point of original encounter indicates the possibility of and need for developing encounter into therapeutic relationships. • As the interaction process progresses towards rapport the circle joins in to one full circle, representing that the potential for a therapeutic relationship has been attained.
    40. 40. MID-RANGE THEORY OF IPR • Hildegard Peplau’s (1952:1997) mid-range theory of interpersonal relationships is considered an essential theory frame work for the study of interpersonal relationships. • The model describes how the nurse-client relationship can facilitate the identification and accomplishments of therapeutic goals top enhance client and family well-being. • In today’s health care environment nurse-client relationships are of short duration concise and effective. Despite the brevity of the relationship, Peplau’s basic principles partnership and terminating a relationship remain relevant. • Peplau’s frame work for interpersonal relationships is applicable to all areas of nursing.
    41. 41. MAJOR CONCEPTS • The theory explains the purpose of nursing to help others identify their felt difficulties. • Nurses should apply principles of human relations to the problems that arise at all levels of experience. • Peplau’s theory explains the phases of interpersonal process, roles in nursing situations and methods of studying nursing as an interpersonal process. • Nursing is an interpersonal process because it involves interaction between two or more individuals with a common goal. • The attainment of goal is achieved through the use of a series of steps following a series of pattern. • The nurse and patient work together so both become mature and knowledgeable in the process.
    42. 42. DEFINITIONS • Person- A developing organism that tries to reduce anxiety caused by needs. • Environment- Existing forces outside the organism and in the context of culture. • Health- A word symbol that implies forward movement of personality and other ongoing human process in the direction of creative, constructive, productive, personal and community living. • Nursing- A significant therapeutic interpersonal process. It functions cooperatively with other human process that makes health possible for individuals in communities
    43. 43. PEPLAU’S SIX NURSING ROLES • Stranger: Receives the client the same way one meets a stranger in other life situations, provides an accepting climate that builds trust. • Resource role: Answers questions, interprets clinical treatment data, and gives information. • Teaching role: Gives instructions and provides training, involves analysis and synthesis of the learner experience. • Counselling role: Helps client understand and integrate the meaning of current life circumstances provide guidance and encouragement to make changes. • Surrogate role: Helps client clarify domains of dependence, interdependence and independence and acts on client’s behalf as an advocate. • Leadership role: Helps client assume maximum responsibility for meeting treatment goals in a mutually satisfying way.

    45. 45. PHASES OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIP • The nurse-client relation is therapeutic not social in nature. • It is always client centred and goal directed. • It is objective rather than subjective. The intent of a professional relationship is for client behaviour to change. • It is a limited relationship, with the goal of helping the client find more satisfying behaviour patterns and coping strategies and increase self worth. • It is not for mutual satisfaction.
    46. 46. PHASES OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIP (CONT.) • Peplau’s developmental stages parallel to the nursing process. • The orientation phase correlates with the assessment phase of the nursing process. • The identification component of the working phase corresponds to the planning phase, where as the exploitation phase parallels the implementation phase. • The final resolution phase of the relationship corresponds to the evaluation phase of the nursing process.
    47. 47. PRE INTERACTION PHASE • The pre interaction phase is the only one in which the client does not directly participate. Awareness of professional goal is important. • The preinteraction phase occurs before you meet the client. In this phase you will gather information about the client. In this phase, the nurse and client do not have direct communication. • First phase in Peplau’s theory is orientation phase.
    48. 48. ORIENTATION PHASE • The nurse enters the relationship in the “Stranger” role and begins the process of developing trust by providing the client with basic information about the nurse and essential information about the purpose, nature, and time available for the relationship. • It is also referred to as the introductory or the prehelping phase is important because it sets the tone for the rest of the relationship.
    49. 49. ORIENTATION PHASE (CONT.) • It begins when you meet the client. • The goal in this phase is to establish rapport and trust. • This phase begins with introductions, followed by an initial exchange of information. • During this phase verbal and nonverbal communication occurs.
    50. 50. WORKING PHASE / IDENTIFICATION PHASE • It is the planning phase. The conversation in the working phase turns active problem solving related to assess health care needs. • Clients are able to discuss deeper, more difficult issues and experiment with new role and actions.
    51. 51. WORKING PHASE/ IDENTIFICATION PHASE (CONT.) • Working phase focuses on self direction and self management to whatever extent is possible in promoting the clients health and well-being. • It is the active part of the relationship. • During this phase, caring is communicated, thoughts and feelings are expressed, mutual respect is maintained, and honest verbal and nonverbal expression occurs. • Key communication goals are to assist the client to clarify feelings and concerns
    52. 52. EXPLOITATION PHASE • Use of professional assistance for problem solving alternatives. • Individual feels as an integral part of the helping environment. • The principles of interview techniques must be used in order to explore, understand and adequately, deal with the underlying problem. • Patient may fluctuate on independence. • Nurse aids the patient in exploiting all avenues of help and progress made towards the final step.
    53. 53. TERMINATION PHASE • In the termination phase, the nurse and client evaluate the client’s responses to treatment, and explore the meaning of the relationship and what goals have been achieved. Nurses need to be sufficiently aware of their own feelings so that they may use them constructively without imposing them on the client. • Patient drifts away and breaks bond with nurse and healthier emotional balance is demonstrated and both become mature individuals.
    54. 54. TERMINATION PHASE (CONT.) • The termination phase is the conclusion of the relationship, whether at the end of the nurse’s shift or on the client’s discharge from the unit, facility or service. If communication has been effective, the termination phase prepares the nurse and client for future interactions
    55. 55. INTERPERSONAL THEORY AND NURSING PROCESS • Both are sequential and focus on therapeutic relationship. • Both use problem solving techniques for the nurse and patient to collaborate on, with the end purpose of meeting the patient needs.
    56. 56. ASSESSMENT  Data collection and (Continuous).  May not be a felt need. ORIENTATION analysis  Non continuous collection  Felt need.  Define needs NURSING DIAGNONSIS PLANNING  Mutually set goals IDENTIFICATION  Interdependent goal setting IMPLEMENTATION EXPLOITATION  Plans initiated towards achievement of  Patient actively mutually set goals and drawing help  May be accomplished by patient nurse or  Patient initiated family. EVALUATION  Based on mutually expected behaviour  May led to termination and initiation data seeking RESOLUTION  Occurs after other phases are completed successfully.  Leads to termination.
    57. 57. CONCLUSION • Communication is essential wherever there are people living and working together. Interpersonal relationship is also an important factor in our day to day communication, especially in the field of nursing. Considerable thought and attention have been given to the subject of IPR. Nursing is a caring profession and basically the primary role of a nurse is to render on effective harmonious relationship to the patient so both communication and interpersonal relationship are both sides of a coin.
