Abstract

Background
Nurses and midwives must be able to adapt their behavior and language to meet the health care needs of patients and their families in diverse and at times difficult circumstances.
Methods
This study of fourth-year dual-degree nurse midwives used Communication Accommodation Theory strategies to examine their use of language and discourse when managing a sequential simulation of neonatal resuscitation and bereavement support.
Results
The results showed that many of the students were slow to respond to the changing needs of the patient and family and at times used ineffectual and disengaging language.
Conclusion
Clinical simulation is a safe and effective method for nurses and midwives to experience and practice the use of language and discourse in challenging circumstances.
