From the Back Cover:

Now in an updated second edition, this much-admired primer for students offers an accessible and reliable introduction to health communication. Health is such an important and complex topic that how and what we communicate to one another about it is of central concern. Integrating the latest thinking and covering a host of fresh topics, this fully revised text features new and enhanced material on risk and crisis communication, health issues of global significance, spirituality and health, disparities in health provision, and political issues in health communication. The diversity of content reflects the span of the subject – from media campaigns to sensitive dialogue with terminally ill patients.

For this edition, the authors have added substantially to the content and reworked existing chapters to reflect new methods and results. They maintain their student-centered approach with fresh case studies neatly summarizing fundamental points, a full glossary, and chapter summaries with discussion questions. This engaging work guides students majoring in public health, communications or any healthcare discipline to a solid understanding of the intricate links between health and the processes of communication.
