Title: The Routledge Handbook of Language and Health Communication
Series Title: Routledge Handbooks in Applied Linguistics
Publisher: Routledge (Taylor and Francis)
The Routledge Handbook of Language and Health Communication consists of forty chapters that provide a broad, comprehensive, and systematic overview of the role that linguistics plays within health communication research and its applications. The Handbook is divided into three sections:
•Individuals’ everyday health communication •Health professionals’ communicative practices •Patient-provider communication in interaction.
Special attention is given to cross-cutting themes, including the role of technology in health communication, narrative, and observations of authentic, naturally-occurring contexts. The chapters are written by international authorities representing a wide range of perspectives and approaches.
Building on established work with cutting-edge studies on the changing health communication landscape, this volume will be an essential reference for all those involved in health communication and applied linguistics research and practice.
