The Institute for Communication in Health Care (ICH)

Based at one of Australia’s leading research-intensive universities, the ICH addresses mounting evidence that ineffective communication at all levels of the healthcare system leads to poor patient outcomes, including serious illness and death, and contributes to clinician dissatisfaction.

The Institute aims to translate cutting-edge communication research into best practice for safe and compassionate health care. It is located in the College of Arts and Social Sciences, within the Research School of Humanities and the Arts. It also has very strong links with the ANU School of Medicine and with organisations in the healthcare sector in NSW (such as St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney), ACT, across Australia and internationally.

Recognising the increasing linguistic and cultural diversity of healthcare consumers and clinicians, the institute encourages an innovative interprofessional approach. Through its collaborative projects and events, the ICH brings together internationally renowned experts from the disciplines of medicine, nursing and other health professions, medical/healthcare education, interprofessional training and practice, health policy and leadership, health sciences, linguistics, health communication studies, sociology, and clinical service redesign.

Building on extensive collaborations established over the last six years between healthcare professionals and communication experts from around the world, the Institute fosters innovative interdisciplinary research, collaborative projects and annual international events.
