CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Communicating to Manage Health and Illness is a valuable resource for those
in the field of health and interpersonal communication, public health,
medicine, and related health disciplines. This scholarly edited volume advances
the theoretical bases of health communication in two key areas: 1)
communication, identity, and relationships; and 2) health care provider patient
interaction. Chapters aim to underscore the theory that communication processes
are a link between personal, social, cultural, and institutional factors and
various facets of health and illness. Contributors to the work are respected
scholars from the fields of communication, public health, medicine nursing,
psychology, and other areas, and focus on ways in which patient identity is
communicated in health-related interactions. This book serves as an excellent
reference tool and is a substantial addition to health communication literature.
