Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Peter Uttle has called "communication" a chameleon word - one that changes its meaning and application with each person who uses it. The Concise Oxford Dictionary definies the word as follows: "Communicate - to import, transmit, share". The nature of communication is very complex and we shall here discuss only the practical aspect of communication as the PROCESS governs human relations. The value of efficiency in practical communication to the medical profession cannot be overemphasised; this is inclusive of such specific activities as reading a paper, conducting a meeting or an interview (a viva voce or oral examination, or what you may choose to call it) apart from the all important confrontation with the patient.
