    Une pratique efficace des soins infirmiers dépend d’une relation thérapeutique efficace entre le client et l’infirmière. Cette Ligne directrice porte sur les qualités d’une relation thérapeutique efficace, sur les possibilités qu’elle offre, sur l’état des connaissances et sur les connaissances requises afin de pouvoir travailler efficacement dans une relation thérapeutique. Afin qu’une relation thérapeutique puisse être instaurée avec succès, les valeurs du milieu de travail et les caractéristiques essentielles de l’établissement doivent être en place et doivent être compatibles avec cet objectif. Une feuille de travail sur le niveau de préparation de votre établissement est compris.
