 Interactional analysis of health communication with people with intellectual disabilities, Thursday 23 November 2017 at King’s College London

The workshop is led by Dr Deborah Chinn, NIHR Post Doctoral Research Fellow at King’s College London. Deborah will draw out the lessons for practitioners from research exploring communication in medical consultations for people with intellectual disabilities. This will outline how detailed interactional analysis of the way practitioners talk to people with intellectual disabilities identifies how different social identities and opportunities for action are opened up or closed down in service settings.
