International Conference on Communication in Healthcare on 16 – 19th October 2011 – Chicago, IL, USA
The symposium presentations represented some of the work of the International Collaborative on Communication in Healthcare, a multidisciplinary group of healthcare communication and relationship experts—clinicians, educators, academic researchers, policymakers, and leaders—from around the world. Our goal is to bridge the gap between research, education, and clinical practice.
The International Charter for Human Values in Healthcare is an initiative of the International Collaborative on Communication in Healthcare. Symposium presenters shared the work of this International Collaborative, and described how they have come together to understand and improve the role of communication in the delivery of compassionate, quality healthcare.
Symposium participants, a diverse international group, discussed the Charter, identified core values, and prioritized the values they considered most important for all healthcare interactions.
The International Conference on Communication in Healthcare (ICCH) is the largest gathering of researchers, educators and administrators from around the world focusing on improving communication and relationships in healthcare. The 2011 ICCH was hosted by the American Academy on Communication in Healthcare (AACH) and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL USA, in partnership with the European Association for Communication in Healthcare (EACH).
