In today’s multicultural society, medical communication increasingly involves intercultural medical communication, with patients and doctors from different ethnic backgrounds. Earlier research has shown that medical communication between doctors and patients with different ethnic backgrounds is less effective than intracultural medical communication. In her research Sanne Schinkel studies the differences in the way Dutch and Turkish-Dutch patients communicate with their GP. She looks at the factors that determine patient participation and the relationship between participation and communication outcomes in these patient groups.
