About this item

The author draws from pragmatics and argumentation theory and health communication to understand communication in the doctor-patient relationship. She discusses the main models of care, namely disease-centered care and paternalism, and patient-centeredness; the main functions of communication for rapport building, information exchange, and decision making; and theoretical and methodological tools to improve health communication, including a socio-cognitive approach to language use and deliberation dialogue for decision making.
