Abstract

Good communication between clinicians and pathologists is a vital element in the diagnostic process, and poor communicationcan adversely affect patient care. There is a lack of research aboutcommunication in diagnostic oral and maxillofacial pathology.This narrative review explores different aspects of the quality ofcommunication between clinicians and oral pathologists, with a focuson the diagnosis of oral and maxillofacial diseases. An electronic searchwas carried out in MEDLINE through the PubMed, Scopus, and Embasedatabases up to April 2021. No studies reporting communication, itsadequacy or the required skills between clinicians and pathologists inoral diagnosis were found. According to studies published in medicine,strategies for improving communication skills include clinicianpathologistcollaboration; a well-formatted, clear and thorough report;training in communication skills; and patient-centered care. Furtherstudies evaluating the current practices and quality in oral andmaxillofacial pathology are required to identify barriers and encourageoptimal communication to facilitate diagnosis, as well as patient safety
