Detail Summary

The lecture concerns selected research problems regarding communication in medicine conducted in Poland and the latest activity of some scientific institutions (like Polish Medical Communication Association) for the development of medical communication in Poland.

The center of my attention is the role of language in the relation between patients and health care workers as well as in the contemporary medical discourse in Poland. I would like to show the possible use of linguistic tools (especially cognitive ones) to study some aspects of medical discourse and improve the medical communication in the further perspective.”
