During the course of conducting research across projects at Imperial College London with parents, patients, and clinicians, my colleagues and I have identified that the language used by clinicians and researchers plays a strong role in the experiences of patients and parents of patients.
This talk will discuss several of the linguistic phenomena that we have identified through current literature on the nature of linguistics, language, medicine, science, and patient/parent experiences, along with the recommendations that we have presented and will present to clinicians and researchers to support patient and parent experiences of clinical care and research.
