If there’s one thing that gets nursing students and new nurses REALLY nervous (like voice shaking, sweat-on-the-forehead nervous), it’s calling the MD with a concern about your patient. You might be thinking, “What if I don’t know what to say?” or “What if they ask me a question I don’t know the answer to?” or even “What if they yell at me, tell me to stop wasting their time, and hang up on me?”
Don’t worry, my friends! As usual, I have got your back 🙂 In this episode, we’ll be talking all about SBAR, a concise communication format used extensively in the clinical setting.
- First, we’ll go over SBAR…what do all those letters represent?
- I’ll give you my best tips for what to do BEFORE you use SBAR
- And, we’ll see how it works in action with some SBAR scenarios
