Author information

  • 1Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, USA.

Abstract

This paper advocates a philosophical and methodological approach to the medical conversation between doctor and patient. It engages the issue of subjectivity in medicine, focusing on the dialogue between patient and physician regarding health choices and subjective experience. A performatory approach to training physicians to communicate with their patients (rather than a cognitive approach to doctor-patient communication) is described.
