Doctor-Patient Communication Skills: Working Papers 1-4 and Appendices.
Candlin, Christopher N.; And Others
The four reports in this volume cover several phases of a project to determine English language education needs of foreign doctors and medical staff working in hopsitals in the United Kingdom. Each paper deals with a set of data the consideration of which may be applied to curriculum development in English for special purposes for medical practitioners. Topics covered include: (1) assessment of priorities in the development of staff-patient communication skills in a variety of clinical contexts; (2) research into the demands made on staff communicative ability in real medical situations; (3) "Doctor Speech Functions in Casualty Consultations: Some Quantified Characteristics of Discourse in a Regulated Setting"; and (4) "Doctors in Casuality: Applying Components of Communicative Competence to Specialist Course Design."
