Title: The Discourse of Hospital Communication
Subtitle: Tracing Complexities in Contemporary Health Organizations
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Professional and Organizational Discourse
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Bringing together recent international research in the field of hospital communication and interaction, the contributors to this book contextualize clinical professional work by focussing on the rising intensity of information and communication practices in organizations generally, and in health care in particular. The book provides a rich resource for students and scholars interested in how hospital work is performed and communicated and what the hospital's extreme organizational complexity means for traditional approaches to discourse analysis, communication research and activity theory.
