CIRCD presents work on health care interaction conference

CIRCD researchers Jeanette Landgrebe, Rikke Nielsen and Simon Bierring Lange participated in the International Meeting on Conversation Analysis and Clinical Encounters (CACE) in Bristol on 12 - 14 July. CACE is a biennial international meeting for academics and clinicians interested in the application of conversation analytic (CA) methods to communication in medical care.

All three researchers presented work on video mediated interaction in health care and social psychiatry as part of the Velux-funded project “Video mediated interaction in professional settings”. The presentations sparked interest from international colleagues and resulted in great comments and inputs. International collaborations are in the making as a direct outcome.

The CIRCD presentations showcased the variety of the collected data on video mediated interaction: Jeanette Landgrebe presented a paper on online recovery-oriented meetings in social psychiatric drop-in centres. Rikke Nielsen hosted a data session on video mediated consultations between general practictioners using telepresence robots and geriatric patients. Simon Bierring Lange hosted a data session on video mediated check up consultations between nurses at a hospital and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in their homes.

The conference was a well organised forum for sharing research, ideas and collaboration, and CIRCD is looking forward to CACE 2019. Read more about the conference at: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/primaryhealthcare/news/2017/cace-2017.html
