Diversity and Difference in Communication (LibreTexts)

Interpersonal communication in health and social care services is by its nature diverse. As a consequence, achieving good or effective communication whether between service providers and service users, or among those working in a service means taking account of diversity, rather than assuming that every interaction will be the same. This text available through LibreTexts explores the ways in which difference and diversity impact on the nature of communication in health and social care services.
