Health communication is a rapidly changing field of research and work.  Exciting new work is being done within the field to promote patient safety and quality of care. Please join Professor Bernadette Watson, the Centre Director, and colleagues to learn about how the International Research Centre for the Advancement of Health Communication (IRCAHC) is leading this work.  Professor Watson will set out the Centre’s new research strategy and highlight it’s renewed focus on making a practical contribution to health care innovation in Hong Kong and around the world.

To introduce the work of IRCAHC we are hosting a free symposium at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University on Friday 19th January 2018.  This will be followed on Saturday 20th January by a paid workshop on the software program Discursis which can be used for the analysis of Chinese and English conversational data.  Attendees at this workshop will receive a license for this software.
