Hi,

It is very important to have excellent communication skills if you want to work as a dietitian in top hospitals. As there are patients from all the ages and with different stages of diseases, they are not in their normal self to accept every thing, so they need some one with excellent communication skills to counsel them.

Good communication skills help the dietitians and nutritionists to deal with the patients in the hospitals.They usually plan , implement and oversee nutrition and food service programs . They are employed in a variety of settings including hospitals, extended care facilities, public health centers, etc.

Dietitians need to use advanced communication skills as well as technical expertise in order to assess clients needs, identify their problems and help them to manage their diet and life style. So they need to develop relationship with the patients, which will require excellent communication skills.The ability to develop a helping relationship is fundamental to achieving a mutually satisfactory dietetic interview.

Counselling skills, defined as advanced communication skills used intentionally in a helping relationship, are therefore essential for good dietetic practice at all levels of the profession.
Communication skills include

  • Verbal communication
    This is done by talking to the patients .Verbal communication skills along with counseling techniques is an excellent method to convince the patients. This is most commonly used method.

  • Non- verbal communication
    This is done by gestures. By your body language you can make the things happen which are otherwise difficult. By touch also you can convey many massages.

  • Interpersonal communication skills
    This also helps to identify the needs of a patient and help them improve their health as soon as possible.

In sickness every living soul becomes weak and helpless to understand anything. Dietitians with excellent communication skills can handle such situations. They need counseling , support and help to come out of this situation, this is possible with the help of a passionate dietitian having good communication skills. One should have the passion to help people in need and rest follows on its own. A lot of patience is required to go on this path along with excellent communication skills.

Apart from all the above qualities empathy is the most important aspect of a personality , which takes a person through such kind of jobs. I hope i have given a satisfactory answer to your question.

ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!
