Role Play and Clinical Communication Learning the Game

By John Skelton Copyright 2008

    In "Role Play and Clinical Communication", John Skelton critically considers the practice and benefits of this mainstream teaching method. His wide-ranging approach reflects on the recent developments within medical education, incorporating the medical humanities, the nature of language and communication, and the rules of human behaviour. You will find Skelton's light-hearted and open-minded attitude to communication unquestionably illuminating.

    A reflection on Socrates. The language of the classroom. Rich context. The rules of the game. Ask don’t tell. The basic scenario (with Connie Wiskin). Strange shadows (with Connie Wiskin). Notes on the game of writing scientific text. The good doctor.


    John Skelton, Anneliese Guerin-LeTendre
