Health Communication

Communication in the area of health is a central concern for policy makers, economists, and academics. Researchers who examine the impact of communication on health and health care delivery are privileged to focus upon processes of fundamental human import. The media play a key role in each of these debates and the importance of provider-patient interaction is an ever-growing concern in the dissemination of quality health care. The key question in relation to communication and health is how to maximize health outcomes through optimal communication. This course is designed to offer both a broad perspective to main topics in the field of health communication such as doctor-patient communication, health and the media, risk communication, health literacy, and e-health. In addition, this seminar will include a comprehensive review and evaluation of current theories in health communication
