how important communication is as we care for our patients, including your own experiences. Answer the following questions:

Over the past few weeks you have had training in caring for patients during the Covid-19 pandemic, including the wearing of masks, shields and more. Reflect on how important communication is as we care for our patients, including your own experiences. Answer the following questions:

What general difficulties have you had or observed with communication? Refer (without using patient or facility names) to a time during your clinical experience that communication went well or did not go well. 
How has using the required PPD to prevent the spread of Covid-19 made communication difficult with your patients?  What techniques have you or other health care providers used to improve communication?  Have you had to help families communicate with the patient while not being able to visit in person?  Have you had a hearing-impaired patient who usually reads lips?
Can you identify your own personal strengths and weaknesses related to communication? This can be in patient care, or generally related to the topic of communication.
