「医療・介護の現場におけるコミュニケーション―『福祉言語学』の視点に立って―」(Communication in Japanese Healthcare Contexts: From the Perspective of Welfare Linguistics)

April 25, 2009


The topic of this workshop is communication in Japanese healthcare contexts, one of the major issues the Japanese linguist Munemasa Tokugawa (1930-1999) included in his concept of “welfare linguistics”. The aim of the workshop is to examine healthcare communication from various angles and provide a forum for discussion between linguists and medical professionals. Reflecting Japan’s aging society, a special focus is on communication in elderly care.

The workshop will be held in Japanese. It is jointly organized with the National Institute for Japanese Language and funded by Friedrich-Ebert Foundation.
