Evidence of nonverbal communication
between nurses and older adults: a scoping
Esther L. Wanko Keutchafo* , Jane Kerr and Mary Ann Jarvis
Background: Communication is an integral part of life and of nurse-patient relationships. Effective communication
with patients can improve the quality of care. However, the specific communication needs of older adults can
render communication between them and nurses as less effective with negative outcomes.
Methods: This scoping review aims at describing the type of nonverbal communication used by nurses to
communicate with older adults. It also describes the older adults’ perceptions of nurses’ nonverbal communication
behaviors. It followed (Int J Soc Res 8: 19-32, 2005) framework. Grey literature and 11 databases were systematically
searched for studies published in English and French, using search terms synonymous with nonverbal
communication between nurses and older adults for the period 2000 to 2019.
Results: The search revealed limited published research addressing nonverbal communication between older
adults and nurses. The studies eligible for quality assessment were found to be of high quality. Twenty-two studies
were included and highlighted haptics, kinesics, proxemics, and vocalics as most frequently used by nurses when
communicating with older adults; while studies showed limited use of artefacts and chronemics. There was no
mention of nurses’ use of silence as a nonverbal communication strategy. Additionally, there were both older
adults’ positive and negative responses to nurses’ nonverbal communication behaviors.
Conclusion: Nurses should be self-aware of their nonverbal communication behaviors with older adults as well as the
way in which the meanings of the messages might be misinterpreted. In addition, nurses should identify their own
style of nonverbal communication and understand its modification as necessary in accordance with patient’s needs.
