Module 1 - Introduction to Communication and Interpersonal Skills
Communication and interpersonal skills are critical to the well-being of recipients and clients. The ability of the HHA to communicate changing conditions of the recipient to proper staff may be critical to the recipient’s well-being. The HHA must also interact effectively with other members of the health care team including RN's, CNA's and perhaps the recipients family. Therefore, the HHA should receive training in basic verbal and nonverbal communication techniques, identification of factors which may impair communication and methods to enhance interpersonal skills.
