About this event

"I shall be bringing some video-recorded extracts of non-native speaker diabetes consultations collected by a research team from an NHS hospital in 2011, with the original aim being to improve translated consultations (Seale, Rivas & Kelly, 2013; Rivas, Kelly & Seale, 2014). This data was used for my MA thesis “We know that any exercise helps you”: doing lifestyle decision-making in non-native speaker diabetes consultations. In the extracts that I will show, the focus (although not restricted to) will be on how HCPs and patients ‘negotiate’ doing a change and how the outcome is projected by prior turns."

Please note: These materials must not be recorded and transcripts must be returned at the end of the session.
