In intensive Care Units (ICU), where patients are critically ill and require complex and specialised care, nurses need to develop 360° communication skills.1, 2

360° communication is comprehensive, bidirectional and effective communication; that which is established both with other professionals of the same or different disciplines and with the patient and his/her family, focused on the critical patient, characterised by constant feedback in both directions and in which care is taken with verbal and non-verbal communication, as well as active and conscious listening.3, 4
