Praise for “Health Communication: From Theory to Practice”
“Dr. Schiavo superbly blends the practical with the theoretical in an elegantly and simply structured text on health communication. Her strategic use of case studies mixed with her own substantial field experience in the complexities of health communication in action effectively draws attention to the fundamental theme: health communication is a multifaceted and multidisciplinary field. And there are no magic bullets.”
– Everold Hosein, Ph.D., communication advisor, World Health Organization Mediterranean Center for Vulnerability Reduction, Tunis, Tunisia and co-director, Indiana University Global Health Communication Research and Resources Project, Indianapolis
“Essential reading for health communication students, professionals, or individuals who are new to the field. The abundance of practical advice, professional tips, key concepts, case studies, and illustrative examples facilitates the application of the theory and the use of the tools presented in this book. I have not found a more comprehensive and systematic guide into the art and science of this multidisciplinary field.”
–Walter Saba, M.H.S., senior program officer, JHPIEGO–an affiliate of Johns Hopkins University

2. Health Care Communication by: Judy Allen,Susan A. Brock
The importance of effective communication in health care both with patients and with other professionals, has long been acknowledged. However, most models assume that all the people with whom we communicate will react the same way – what works for one person will be equally good for another. InHealth Care Communication Using Personality Type, Susan A. Brock and Judy Allen contest this assumption. This groundbreaking text draws upon examples from everyday health care situations to demonstrate that the behaviour differences we all experience in others actually fit within a readily understandable framework (the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). Using this knowledge, successful health professionals can learn to vary the way they approach patients, more effectively break bad news and encourage clients to follow clinical advice.
