Lynne T. Braun, PhD, ANP, from Rush University discussed why communication is so important in patient care and what health care professionals can do to improve that level of communication during the American College of Cardiology's 65th Annual Scientific Session and Expo in Chicago. Braun said communication is important not only for patients who are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease, but also those being treated for the most serious conditions in the field.
