Therapeutic Communication- Case Scenarios
Case #1- The patient was admitted 2 days ago with a diagnosis of cancer.  She was informed by her doctor that a course of radiation and chemotherapy was her best option.  She became very upset and frightened about the proposed treatment and stated that she wasn’t sure if she would go through with it.  The nurse approaches her to discuss how she is feeling today.
Nurse:  “How are you doing today, Miss Smith.  I was wondering how you were feeling about undergoing radiation and chemotherapy?”
Patient:  “I don’t know.  I’m not as scared as I was when I got here, but I have a lot of questions about it.”
Nurse:  “It sounds like you have given it some thought.  I’m sure Dr. Jones could talk with you and answer some of your questions.  Would you like to do that?”
Patient: “I guess so.  What do you think?”
Think of a few ways the nurse could respond. Provide references to support your statements. Please use your textbook.
Case #2
An elderly patient is sitting in bed taking a nap. A tray of uneaten food is on the bedside table.  The nurse comes into the room.
Think of a few ideas of what the nurse could say to start a therapeutic conversation with this patient. Provide references to support your statements. Please use your textbook.
Nurse:  “…………”
Patient: “Oh, don’t bother with me.  I don’t have much time left in this world.
And I don’t have much to live for anyway.”
Nurse:  Think of a few therapeutic responses. Provide references to support your statements. Please use your textbook
