10:00-10:30 Welcome and opening remarks
10:30-12:00 Table talk: Answering Pressing Questions.
Each participant will provide an individual response to the pressing question assigned to their panel. These responses will be presented to the entire symposium, generating further discussions surrounding each question.
Question 1: How do we create a system that is non-physician centric, and that makes best uses of the talents of a range of healthcare professionals?
Question 2: What is the relationship between medical rhetoric, rhetoric of science and rhetoric of technology?
Question 3: Patient-centered practices and shared decision-making is pervasive language in health care. The actual definition of these practices and the exercise of such practices, including involving patients in a different way than they have been in the past, are areas timely for rhetorical inquiry.
Question 4: How can communication be used to promote coordination and cooperation between interdependent participants within the health system (consumers, providers, caregivers, health administrators, policy makers, etc.)?
Question 5: How can communication be used to promote coordination and cooperation between interdependent participants within the health system (consumers, providers, caregivers, health administrators, policy makers, etc.)?
Question 6: There is a disconnect between what patients often know they SHOULD do versus what they ACTUALLY DO. This has implications for patients themselves, as well as for the broader healthcare system. Communication scholars have an important role to play in finding out how and why this is the case, as well as ways to encourage positive health behavior change in ways that will benefit patients and the broader public health.
Question 7: For me, the relation of well being to place and identity is critically important to the role that medicine plays in politics and the regulation of life. Finding ways to protect ourselves is critical to politics and it is impossible to think of self-protection without some level of medicalized engagement anymore.
