Doctor-Physician Communication in China: Cultural and Social Change in the Transition From Traditional Medicine to Western Medicine

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

With culture as a core essence, this research explores patient-physician communication in a social and cultural context in China as well as presents another way of reflecting the Asia-centric thoughts on theorizing health communication. Specifically, the importance and influence of culture in the physician-patient communication is discussed. The author will discuss problems that emerged in the research process. In conducting this research, expected meanings from the cultural context were lost in translation. For instance, the concept of the Chinese way of giving money to the doctor as "Red Bag" is very difficult to translate into English. Another example would be "relationship", which has multiple levels of meanings in the Chinese languages and culture. However, when translated into English, it loses its meaning.
