Overview

Cross-Cultural Communication in the Health Sciences is a comprehensive guide to the issues and problems faced by health professionals when they communicate with their clients and patients from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Health professionals rely heavily on communication with or about a patient/health care user to provide adequate health care: they ask questions to establish what the matter is, they convey their diagnoses, actions or treatment programs via language, they give advice about health management and medication, they give emotional support. Cross-Cultural Communication in the Health Sciences shows a strong link between one of the major problems in health promotion - namely, a lack of compliance - and poor communication between health professional and patient. In a society as culturally diverse as Australia, communication in health care encounters requires a great deal of sensitivity to and understanding of cultural differences in the perceptions of health, illness and health care, as well as an understanding of linguistic differences and the difficulties of communicating in this context. This book gives a detailed insight into communication in the health sciences, with a specific focus on interactions with patients. It discusses the linguistic and cultural complexities of communicating with patients from non-English speaking backgrounds and it provides some explanations for why such difficulties occur. The book also offers many practical solutions and strategies for dealing with cultural and linguistic issues and problems in health care settings.
