Emergency Communication Project - University of Technology Sydney
Over the last three years, the Emergency Communication Project has investigated communication between patients and clinicians in five representative emergency departments in NSW and the ACT. The project presents a detailed picture of the critical importance of communication in the delivery of effective patient care.
The project recorded, analysed and described spoken interactions between health care practitioners and patients, focusing on the causes of misunderstandings and breakdowns in communication in hospital emergency departments. It involved 1,093 hours of observation, 150 interviews with key staff and patients and 82 patient journeys recorded from triage to disposition. The project represents one of the most comprehensive studies internationally on clinician-patient communication in hospitals.
