Published Online: 2008-06-02 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/text.1.21.1-2.13


The studies herein offer previously unarticulated insights about physician–patient–family relationships. Primary attention is drawn to interactions comprising medical interviews, though conversations among family members are also addressed:

i. How do patients initiate and solicit social actions during clinical encounters?

ii. Outside of the clinic (e.g., in home environments), how do patients and family members deliver and update news about an illness?
