Topics addressed include patient-provider communication in medical education, emergency and disaster scenarios, doctor offices and clinics, adult and pediatric acute care settings, rehabilitation, long-term residential care, and hospice/palliative care situations.

The editors are recognized internationally for their work in the field of communication disorders and have been active in the area of patient-provider communication for many years. Patient-Provider Communication,is a must-have resource for speech-language pathologists and other health care providers at the forefront of quality patient-centered care.
