It's important that the healthcare is effectively communicated to the client. To ensure that this happens, the following guidelines should be adhered to
- Clearly communicate all prescribed activities to the client and model these activities where possible
- Clearly communicate any necessary alteration of occupational or recreational activities to the client
- Check your client's comprehension of all elements of the programme, and performance of the stress management exercises.
- Stress the importance and benefits of any prescribed activities to the client, and also the implications of them not completing the exercise regularly.
