About Health Communication: Principles and Practices

In this distinctive addition to the literature on medical communication skills, Dr. Steele reviews the literature from an interdisciplinary perspective and considers the curriculum of medical communication skills outside of the traditional metropolitan areas. He includes a collection of materials relevant to tropical medicine, the Caribbean and the Global South and draws upon his experience in designing curricula, teaching, researching and publishing in this field since.
