Mind your language: the effect phrases can have on your patients

Kat Keogh @katkeogh Acting editor, Cancer Nursing Practice

‘When anyone asked me if I was a I nurse I’d say: “Yes, but I know nothing about leukaemia”. I may be different from those who want to know everything, but I made a conscious decision to just be a patient, only involving my professional knowledge once or twice. I trusted my team to do what’s best for me. It was my way of surviving.’
