About this item

As Chief Medical Officer I am very aware of the importance of effective communication with patients and their families. This book comprehensively charts the evidence base that underpins current teaching in clinical communication in medicine and draws together the interdisciplinary strands from which it has evolved, providing a historical perspective. I expect this to become an essential reference text for all those involved in teaching clinical communication to medical students and doctors and for health professionals who are interested in developing their knowledge of the subject. I am happy to endorse this book. Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer

Clinical Communication in Medicine brings together the theories, models and evidence that underpin effective healthcare communication in one accessible volume. Endorsed and developed by members of the UK Council of Clinical Communication in Undergraduate Medical Education, it traces the subject to its primary disciplinary origins, looking at how it is practised, taught and learned today, as well as considering future directions.

Focusing on three key areas -- the doctor-patient relationship, core components of clinical communication, and effective teaching and assessment - Clinical Communication in Medicine enhances the understanding of effective communication. It links theory to teaching, so principles and practice are clearly understood.

Clinical Communication in Medicine Is a new and definitive guide for professionals involved in the education of medical undergraduate students and postgraduate trainees, as well as experienced and junior clinicians, researchers, teachers, students and policymakers.
