Series Title: Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics
Description:

The latest release in the Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics series, Exploring Health Communication brings together many of the various linguistic strands in health communication, while maintaining an interdisciplinary focus on method and theory. It critically explores and discusses a number of underlying themes that constitute the broad field of health communication including spoken, written and electronic health communication. The rise of the internet has led to an explosion of interactive online health resources which have profoundly affected the way in which healthcare is delivered, and with this, have brought about changes in the relationship between provider and patient. This textbook uses examples of real life health language data throughout, in order to fully explore the topics covered. Exploring Health Communication is essential reading for graduate and upper undergraduate students of applied linguistics and health communication.
