This class will explore the theory, research, and skills associated with communicating in various care contexts in the U.S. and Ireland. This will include communication among providers, family caregivers, patients, healthcare organizations, and in mediated messages in the marketing and promotion of health information and the politics of health care. We will examine the sociohistorical, interpersonal, narrative, and translational aspects of health in order that you may become more mindful, educated, and effective health communicators, both as possible health care providers and as health care consumers. This course satisfies Health Science elective requirements for both SHU and Ohio Northern University.
