Abstract:

Communication within the context of health and social care faces many
challenges. Our understanding of how language and communication information
is processed by the brain is increasing our awareness of the complexities
involved and the influence of normal aging on communication processing.
Care systems are becoming more complex and service users demand more
information and choice. At the same time, the range of service users
encountered by practitioners includes more people with varied language
backgrounds, and greater language and cultural diversity is occurring among
health and social care staff.

This volume explores current challenges to achieving effective
communication in health and social care. It outlines how practitioners
communicate, innovative methods for teaching communication skills, and
methodologies to include children and people with communication
difficulties in research and in consultation processes about healthcare.
Particular communication issues, within the context of healthcare, for
population groups such as older people, asylum seekers, young offenders and
people with mental health problems are also addressed.
