Purpose: This study was conducted to identify communication principles for nurses in cancer units according to Grice's theory.
Method: This study was a secondary analysis of qualitative research using conversational analysis.
Results: The principles consisted of four maxims: Quality, quantity, relevance and manner and 14 strategies. For the quality maxim, 'asking what you believe to be true' and 'saying the facts you know' strategies were identified. In the quantity maxim, the strategies were 'asking single questions', 'asking open questions' and 'asking optimistic questions'. In the relevance maxim, 'asking about the same theme' and 'giving relevant explanations' strategies were identified. In manner maxim, the strategies were 'using clear expressions in asking questions', 'asking in an orderly way', 'verifying answers', 'using clear expressions in explanations', 'explaining in an orderly way' and 'verifying understanding'.
Conclusion: It is expected that these strategies will help and increase the degree of cooperation for nurses in effectively communication with cancer patients.
