 Abstract:
 
 This book introduces a unique model of medical discourse that identifies
 the forms of talk - voices- that doctors and patients use during the
 consultation, and studies the dynamic interaction as it unfolds
 particularly in follow-up visits. Natural recordings, semi-structured
 interviews, questionnaires and ethnographic observations provide the data
 for the research, which was carried out in an Outpatient Clinic in
 Santiago, Chile. Using an interactional sociolinguistic approach, analysis
 of the data identifies doctor-patient communication as a micro-performance
 of broader socio-cultural realities, in which social status, power,
 knowledge and personal beliefs and values all find expression in the
 consultative setting. Importantly, while both doctor and patient voices are
 shown to contribute to an essentially asymmetrical exchange, the study also
 identifies the holistic and empathic Fellow Human voice, which places
 doctors and patients on a more equal footing. In connection with this
 voice, the Spanish concept of simpatía is also discussed.
 
 While the model in this study was developed within a specific
 socio-cultural framework, it is hoped that it will be adapted and modified
 more widely and contribute to a better understanding between doctors and
 their patients.
