Following Nonye Aghanya’s surgical procedure and during a five-month recovery, she developed an interest to assist clinicians, healthcare providers, and patients foster a more effective clinician-patient relationship. Aghanya identified practical tips to allay patient anxieties during clinical visits, which inspired “Simple Tips to Developing a Productive Clinician-Patient Relationship.”

For over 25 years, Aghanya’s profession as a family nurse practitioner enabled her to work with many patients. Through these interactions, she recognized several communication styles that helped reduce her patient’s apprehensions, resulting in more efficient communication regardless of the patient’s attitude or personality.

“I want to inform readers that a positive relationship is easier to achieve between clinicians and patients when care is guided by the principles of genuine compassion,” said Aghanya. “When a clinician’s communication style is tailored to meet a specific patient’s traits and characteristics, the patient will feel more comfortable in the clinician’s presence.”

With humorous illustrations of clinician-patient scenarios and straightforward dialogues, this guidebook highlights how clinicians can encourage better communication with their patients.
