I'm a nursing student in an accelerated program, taking a class on effective communications. I am in the process of writing a paper on communication strategies for patients experiencing acute alcohol withdrawal, and as part of the paper I am looking at nursing attitudes towards this patient population. Formal research in this area is limited, so as part of structuring my thinking for the paper, I have composed an informal survey. If you have a moment to fill it out, I would be appreciative. All answers will remain anonymous and the results will be limited to the paper for this class. Also, if you have a moment to comment on the communication challenges you face when dealing with this patient population or strategies that you've found to be particularly successful or unsuccessful, please post a response to this post or send me a pm.
The link to the survey is:
Many thanks for your time.
