Abstract:

Understanding and Interaction in Clinical and Educational Settings examines
the interplay of interaction, reasoning, setting, and culture that affects the
creation of understandings. By analyzing and comparing routine activities and
information resources in clinics and classrooms, Barry Saferstein identifies
the components of interactions that enhance or limit understanding. He shows
how explanations intended to produce knowledge may also mobilize aspects of
professional culture that limit its scope and use. Standard formats of
explanations often lead to difficulty understanding medical information or
scientific concepts.

Understanding and Interaction in Clinical and Educational Settings explains
how changes in the use of information resources can transform professional
cultures in ways that improve understandings developed by patients and
students. It will be of interest to medical practitioners, educators and
scholars of social and cognitive sciences.
