Understanding the role of argumentation in chronic care encounters: A comparative analysis of a multicultural corpus

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroContributo a convegno

Abstract

Medical consultations in chronic care can be described as advice-seeking activity types, in which advice-giving is the main discursive activity that entails an argumentative component. This component appears during deliberative and evaluative sequences. In the first case, participants need to find agreement on a solution to a problem. In the second case, participants need to find agreement on how to assess facts in order to make decisions based on those assessments. We are particularly interested in understanding clinicians’ use of argumentation 1. when deciding for a certain treatment; 2. when patients disagree with them. In order to do this, we propose the analysis of a corpus composed of interviews with chronic care doctors, collected in Italy and in the Chinese region of Inner Mongolia.
