Research Article of American Journal of Clinical Research and Reviews THE ROLES OF PSYCHOLOGISTS AS AGENTS OF COMMUNICATION Eliane Nóbrega Albuquerque1*, Mônica de Oliveira Osório2, Ana Paula Amaral Pedrosa3, Cybelle Cavalcanti Accioly4, Juliana Porto Behar5 Introduction: Communication is a central element in any social situation, be it in the ordinary context of everyday life, or in a moment of illness.

Cultural, social, emotional and psychological aspects are present, as well as physiological evidence. Common situations of interference in communication, which generated noise and a misunderstanding about the diagnosis, procedures, use of medications, postoperative were: false compliments about the patient’s condition, ...
