Effective communication is the cornerstone of good medical care. In subspecialties such as interventional nephrology, only the communication between the referring physicians, patients, and other interventional practitioners has been shown to promote satisfaction of all parties and develop increased and repeated referrals. This chapter reviews the point of view of all parties involved and what are the essential points of information that need to be communicated. Using theories and techniques from organizational development research and expertise, this chapter reviews what effective communication is and how to achieve it.
