Communication in Medical and Healthcare Interactions

We are offering a three day in-person short course in researching medical and healthcare interactions, hosted and organised by the Centre for Advanced Studies in Language and Communication at the University of York.

The course is designed to benefit those beginning or in the early stages of research into medical, clinical and healthcare interactions; it is also relevant for healthcare professionals interested in communication.

Course Description

Course participants will:

  • Develop their ability to apply the methods of Conversation Analysis (CA) to medical and healthcare interactions.

  • Gain hands-on experience of working with real data recorded in a variety of healthcare settings.

  • Better understand how they might use CA in their own research.

  • Have a chance to connect, and exchange ideas, with colleagues involved in CA research.

Prior experience of CA will be a real advantage, but is not a prerequisite. Whist it is not possible to learn CA from scratch in just three days, the course is intended to equip participants with practical analytic skills, applicable to future work.
