Abstract Health Communication: Strategies and Skills for a New Era provides a practical process model for developing a health communication intervention. The book also explores exposure to media and how it shapes our conceptions of health and illness. Using a life stages and environments approach, the book touches on the patient role and how we 'hear' information from health care providers as well as guidance on how to be a thoughtful consumer of health information.
