Abstract

This article describes and discusses the conceptual framework developed to emphasize the need for a short-term course on Health communication skills(HSC) for the undergraduate nursing program. The study has adopted mixed methods both qualitative and quantitative approach to critically analyze the factors that influence ineffective communication skills among nurses and the implementation of a health communications skills training hence the conceptual framework depicts both the qualitative conceptual model and Lewin’s theory (adopted ) for quantitative approach. The qualitative conceptual theory describes the factors contributing to ineffective communication and the consequences of it while they need to implement an HSC course as described in Lewin’s conceptual model. The limitations of the current nursing curriculum in India on health communication skills are elaborated and the demand for an HSC course is recommended.
