    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter in textbook/reference bookpeer-review


    Talking within professional and therapeutic contexts is a complex, though often taken-for-granted phenomenon. Effective and meaningful talk is not necessarily easy or straightforward to achieve. In this chapter we explore the nature of talking with others in healthcare. We explore some challenging communication situations, and make suggestions to assist you to develop your ability to talk meaningfully as a healthcare professional. Talk is one aspect of communication, which also includes listening, writing and use of body language.
