Description

Breaking bad news is an extremely difficult and challenging process for the health care professional. The National Service Framework for Children in the UK highlights that the manner in which the health care professional delivers bad news impacts upon the way it is received, interpreted, understood and dealt with. The children's nurse, as an instrumental member of the multidisciplinary team caring for the child and family, is central to this complex communication process. This article examines the literature surrounding the breaking of bad news and introduces a new framework that outlines the multifaceted role of the children's nurse within this complex, challenging process.
