Undoubtedly, effective and efficient communication is crucial to good health care. Poor communication has been linked to discontinuity of care, compromise of patient safety, and patient dissatisfaction. Good practitioner-patient communication, however, assists with increased patient education, engagement and satisfaction, and in turn reduces patient’s anxiety about their health. Moreover, downstream consequences of effective communication in health care and shared decision-making, has shown that patients are less likely to seek legal redress when things do wrong. This special issue seeks to expound the educational, counseling and communication models in health care. I invite contributors with qualitative and quantitative research articles on the ‘hot topic’ of communication in health care.
Aims and Scope:
  1. Behavior change conversations for common issues
  2. Shared decision making in primary care
  3. Patient-centered communication modalities
  4. Digital communication in healthcare
  5. Patient’s perspectives – engagement and satisfaction
  6. Evaluations of teaching practitioner communication skills
