Health Communication

Health Communication

Dedicated to publishing scientific, scholarly articles on the relationship between communication and health. Submissions are welcomed from scholars and practitioners in communication, psychology, sociology, and the other social sciences, as well as those in medicine, nursing, dentistry, physical therapy, dietetics, pharmacy, and the allied health professions. Although most of the published articles are data based, we also welcome pedagogical, methodological, theoretical, and applied submissions, as well as reviews and policy pieces.

Both qualitative and quantitative methods are appropriate. Areas to be addressed in the journal include, but are not limited to, provider– patient (or -family) interaction; communication and cooperation; health information; health promotion; interviewing; health public relations; and gerontological concerns. An important consideration for the judging of articles is the extent to which they focus on actual communicative behavior.
