This book challenges functional models for more aesthetic and ethical models, where communication is grounded in values systems of cultures. Here, communication is treated as a distributed phenomenon involving networks of persons, activities and artifacts, and extends beyond doctor-patient relationships to working in and across teams around patients. The purpose of the book is to stimulate thinking about how patient care and safety may be improved through a focus upon the 'non-technical' work of doctors - interpersonal communication, teamwork and situation awareness in teams. The focus is then not on the personality of the doctor, but on the dynamics of relationships which form doctors' multiple identities.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the book reviews:

Selected as "Highly Commended" at BMA Medical Book Awards for 2014.

"'This book usefully brings together the history, development and important tenets of patient-centred medicine, making it an almost unique reference for this important area of change in how medicine is delivered. ... brings together a wealth of evidence and information that may well be pivotal in both changing the way we educate our future health professionals, particularly doctors, but also deliver healthcare.'" (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2014)

"The book draws on psychology, sociology, the arts, humanities, feminism, linguistics and philosophy. ... This is a book aimed mainly at the serious student of communication - gold dust if you are doing a PhD or a master's in professional practice. It would also sit well on the shelf of the front line clinician seeking to understand the numerous situations in clinical practice that are bedevilled by conflict, crossed wires, unvoiced anxieties and other communication failures." (Trish Greenhalgh, Nursing Standard, Vol. 29 (20), January, 2015)
