Ray (communication, Cleveland State University) presents detailed case studies demonstrating applications of communication in real-life healthcare situations. Written by medical practitioners as well as communication scholars, the cases cover a variety of populations, contexts, and issues in health communication, including delivering bad news, genetics testing, intercultural communication, and international health campaigns. A list of concepts and definitions is included at the end of each case to help students make connections between the scenario and the communications theories it reflects.
