Risk communication interventions can provide benefits at both the individual and population level, however, there is a paucity of research that explores the effectiveness of risk communication strategies by nurses.

This article presents some of the key theories used in risk communication, current nursing science exploring risk communication strategies, and recommendations for future research and practice.
