MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Health Communication: Principles and Practices provides medical students and other allied health professionals and health practitioners with a framework for understanding and applying communication skills in the context of medical education and health education in health settings. This volume provides an integration of knowledge, attitude and behavioural learning outcomes, and of principles with practices. This integration is presented through a range of theoretical, research and practical activities including ethical and reflective perspectives. Godfrey A. Steele provides a step-by-step framework for teaching and delivering a curriculum in medical communication skills. This framework will be of value to all those involved in teaching, learning and developing communication skills among doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, veterinarians, and health education and health-promotion specialists.This volume is a distinctive addition to the literature on medical communication skills offered by other textbooks. Steele reviews the literature from an interdisciplinary perspective and considers the curriculum of medical communication skills outside of the traditional metropolitan areas. He includes a collection of materials relevant to tropical medicine, the Caribbean and the Global South and draws upon his experience in designing curricula, teaching, researching and publishing in this field since 1995.
