We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
I am looking for a corpus of doctor-patient conversations. This data will be used for the purpose of making a discourse analysis study testing previous published ideas of mine on mitigation and empathy.
Does any one know of doctor-patient interaction data, especially situations where the doctor gives bad news to the patient, such as diagnosis of a terminal condition? English is preferable but any other language is good too. Any leads are appreciated!
