    Mohammad Salem and Hasan Sadek

    Objectives: This study was designed to assess the effect of healthcare providers’ communication skills in the satisfaction and outcomes of cancer patients in cancer care centers in Lebanon.

    Methods: This cross sectional quantitative study was conducted in five different cancer care centers in Lebanon. Two hundred and twenty participants across all the five selected centers were asked to take part in the study by filling the 16-item questionnaire. Data was collected within two months, from May to July 2018.

    Results: Two hundred and nine questionnaires (95% response rate) were completed and used in the analysis. Out of the 47.4% of the cancer patients who expressed satisfactions with their consultations with the doctors, only 34% recognized that such consultations were useful. Further, more than 55% of the patients do not understand the medical terms used by doctors and are hence less satisfied with the consultations. This study has also confirmed that most cancer patients consider communication to be more significant at the pretreatment phase.

    Conclusion: We have established that the healthcare practitioners, especially doctors, still use technical language and terminologies that discomfort the cancer patients and thus hamper their satisfaction and better outcome. Moreover, the demographic factors such as level of education also contribute to patients’ satisfaction with caregivers’ communication skills.

    the burden. Cholera in an infectious disease that easily spreads in unhygienic conditions though ingestion of human
    waste-contaminated food stuffs. The developing nations are at steeper slope of falling the eruption of cholera and
    Yemen is already overburdened. In 2017 alone, over 2000 deaths were reported in Yemen despite the governmental,
    non-governmental and intergovernmental collaborative efforts to improve health burdens and meet the Standard
    Development Goals of 2030. The outbreak of cholera in Yemen is common due to the persistent conflicts and
    political violence that disrupts the healthcare service delivery. Nurses and midwives are thus left at the center of the
    play to operate by the nursing care theories and models to improve the situation despite the challenges that thwarted
