Communication forms the core of good palliative care. However, good communication skills are often overlooked as a crucial component of palliative care. This chapter provides suggestions concerning communications in palliative care. The suggestions are not intended as a treatise on communication; in general, they aim to provide ways of improving effective communications within the palliative setting. The suggestions frame the ideal communications between doctor and patient, between doctor and relatives, with fellow professionals and team colleagues, and between nurses.

Keywords:   communication, communication skills, effective communications, doctor, patients, relatives, professionals, team colleagues, nurses
