Unlike standard survey- or interview-based social science research, Conversation Analysis reveals the exact interactional practices by which medical personnel carry out their duties. This gives the results of CA research enviable face validity, and enough detail to indicate specific interventions for change. I outline some of the promises and potential difficulties of applying CA to medical encounters.
Keywords: Conversation Analysis, medical encounters, Applied CA.
