Health Care

I am not seeing anywhere in my text how I would provide this answer could someone point me in the correct direction...
It states this...
Compose a list identifying the major
components of health communication. Who is involved in each component? How does
each component promote health communication? If not utilized, how would it reduce
health communication? Provide examples.

  1. I think I am thinking in the right direction as I have place the sender as the patient and the receiver as the caregiver?

    Someone please help?

  2. You're right - the patient and the doctor or other caregiver are the primary people involved in communication about an individual's health.

    If the patient cannot communicate, then who?

    Here are several sites that may give you additional ideas:

  3. As a partial answer to Writeacher's question, "If the patient cannot communicate, then who?" various signs can communicate to the provider if the patient is unconscious. These include heart and breathing rates, blood pressure, bleeding, skin lesions or wounds, along with results from tests chosen by the provider.

    In addition, various caregivers/providers can communicate information about the patient among themselves.

    Communication is a two-way process. Not only does the patient need to communicate to the provider, the provider needs to communicate to the patient. The provider needs to ask probing questions to elicit information. In dealing with options for treatment, the provider needs to adequately inform the patient of the advantages and disadvantages of each option to help the patient in making a choice.

    Possibly this article might help.

  4. I know of a gent, a Ham Radio Operator, who had a severe stroke, could only move one finger. Communication was impossible, until a fellow Ham visited him, held his hand, and they communicated in morse code by tapping finger to palm. It is amazing what the brain can do. So the fellow Ham was the relay person, after the patient had been in the hospital cricital care unit for four days.
