1. Self-Awareness and CommunicationFree Chapter
Providing inclusive care to patients with chronic or life-limiting illnesses requires self-awareness — an awareness of one’s attitudes, beliefs, and emotions and the ways in which they shape interactions and patient care. For hospice and palliative care professionals, self-awareness should be an ongoing process rather than a static state of existence to strive toward. This chapter describes a seven-step process that hospice and palliative care professionals can follow to improve their ability to provide inclusive, nonjudgmental care when planning, engaging in, and reflecting on patient interactions. In addition, the chapter describes verbal and nonverbal communication techniques to facilitate LGBTQ-inclusive care.
