Resumen

ARAUJO, Monica Martins Trovo de  y  SILVA, Maria Júlia Paes da. The knowledge about communication strategies when taking care of the emotional dimension in palliative care. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.1, pp.121-129. ISSN 0104-0707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072012000100014.

The aim of this qualitative study was to investigate existing knowledge and the use of communication strategies in emotional care for patients receiving palliative care in Brazil. It was performed from August, 2008, to July, 2009, with 303 health professionals who worked or had frequent contact with patients receiving palliative care, using a questionnaire. Data was submitted to descriptive and analytical statistical treatment. The professionals reported not knowing about communication strategies, showing a significant difference (p-value 0.0011) in comparing subjects with and without previous training in palliative care, showing that those who had received proper training know/use more communication strategies when providing care for their patients on an emotional level. The strategies most often cited were: careful listening, verbal reaffirmation of care, using open questions, and affective touch. We conclude that there is little knowledge and poor use of communication strategies among health professionals in towards the emotional care of patients receiving palliative care.
