Risk communication with Arab patients with cancer: a qualitative study of nurses and pharmacists.

Wilbur K, Babiker A, Al-Okka M, Jumaat E, Al-Yafei SM, Nashwan AJ - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: In all discussions, it was noted that physician and family non-disclosure of cancer diagnosis to the patient profoundly influenced the nature of information they provided.While a high level of cohesion in safety communication prioritisation among these two health disciplines was found, a number of pharmacists asserted a more formal role compared to informal and repeated teaching by nurses.We found that they did not always recognise each other's informal educational encounters and that there are opportunities to explore increased collaboration in this regard to enhance the patient care experience.

BMJOPEN2014006890F1: Conceptual diagram. Themes identified from focus group discussions.

Mentions: When prompted next to offer how they would prioritise this communication, concepts and connections to three main themes were identified, describing factors related to: the specific regimen in question; the patient; and their assessment of the patient. Patient-related considerations were then further categorised into subthemes of health status, psychological status and education (figure 1).
