Unformatted Document Text:  Doctor-Patient Communication in Grey’s Anatomy 13 other medical related instructions) 3. Responding to emotions Communication that conveys emotional content through various levels of emotional statements. Doctor to patient: personal life, positive talk, negative talk, building partnership, instruction. Patient to doctor: personal life, positive talk, negative talk, seeking info/instruction/suggestions 4. Patient Education and counseling For this study, patient education and counseling means information and counseling skills that assist patients in making sense of their condition and coping with the medical regimen and lifestyle demands of treatment. On education and medical topics: Doctor- patient communication: symptoms of illness, previous medical diagnosis, information on the use of medicine, information on treatment process. patient - doctor communication: 5. Length of visit and amount of time (patient talk to doctor) Length of visit means the amount of time (in minutes) the doctor visit to patient. ‘Amount of time patient talk to doctor: total amount of time the patient talks to the doctor for questions and information. Minutes spent by doctor , Times (frequency) of prior visit to doctor, and minutes the patient talked to doctor. Data Analysis Preliminary Analysis: Reliability Scott’s pi (Scott, 1955) was used to assess the reliability check. All reliability checks were conducted by having a second coder independently score a random 10% sample (which was 1.5 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, i.e. 10% of the entire sample, and this study conducted inter- coder reliability of 2 random episodes which is more than 10%) and calculating the Scott’s pi between the two coders. In this process, the statistic’s normal range begins from .00 (agreement at chance level) to 1 (perfect agreement), and a value of less than .00 indicates agreement less than chance (Nuendorf, K. 2002, p. 151). Table 1 presents reliability data.

Data Analysis
 Preliminary Analysis: Reliability
Scott’s pi (Scott, 1955) was used to assess the reliability check. All reliability checks 
were conducted by having a second coder independently score a random 10% sample (which was 
1.5 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, i.e. 10% of the entire sample, and this study conducted inter-
coder reliability of 2 random episodes which is more than 10%) and calculating the Scott’s pi 
between the two coders. In this process, the statistic’s normal range begins from .00 (agreement 
at chance level) to 1 (perfect agreement), and a value of less than .00 indicates agreement less 
than chance (Nuendorf, K. 2002, p. 151). Table 1 presents reliability data.
