Patient-Provider Communication: Roles for Speech-Language Pathologists and Other Health Care Professionals presents timely information regarding effective patient-centered communication across a variety of health care settings. Speech-language pathologists, who serve the communication needs of children and adults, as well as professionals from medical and allied health fields will benefit from this valuable resource.

This text is particularly relevant because of changes in health care law and policy. It focuses on value-based care, patient engagement, and positive patient experiences that produce better outcomes. Authors describe evidence-based strategies that support communication vulnerable patients, including individuals who have difficulty speaking, hearing, understanding, seeing, reading, and writing, as well as patients whose challenges reflect limited health literacy, and/or differences in language, culture, religion, sexual orientation, and so on. Topics addressed include patient-provider communication in medical education, emergency and disaster scenarios, doctor's offices and clinics, adult and pediatric acute care settings, rehabilitation, long-term residential care, and hospice/palliative care situations.

The editors are recognized internationally for their work in the field of communication disorders and have been active in the area of patient-provider communication for many years. Patient-Provider Communication is a must-have resource for speech-language pathologists and other health care providers at the forefront of quality patient-centered care.
