P.1 – Produce a guidance document explaining the role of effective communication and interpersonal interaction in a health and social care context for a new member of staff (using a hospital or care home setting) to include:
Communication: text messaging, written, oral, signing, technology.

This can occur on an everyday basis in any health care setting such as one nurse speaking to another nurse about a patient.
This is when more than two people are communicating with each other this can range from 3 to any number such as a class lecture consisting of about 60 people. Group communication is effective as it sends the same information to the entire group at the same time. This can happen in a health care setting such as a care home when they have staff meetings.
This is when people use rules of language in either written or verbal communication such as in a letter from your doctor or either when you have an interview for a job.

And slang would be another form of language this is very similar to dialect and is based on word people say that are not in the dictionary but a lot may know the meaning certain towns and places would have their own slang such as Derry city is well known for its slang. In a hospital if someone came in that was injured and they only talk in slang it can
