Conclusion: The “Prognosis” of Writing in the Health Professions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter concludes the collection, turning the discussion more fully to research. It outlines several key areas for future study: health professions and genres, places, languages, technologies associated with the third and fourth industrial revolutions, theories, and methods (especially methods from big data and user experience), as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion. Afterward, the chapter encourages a synergy of intraprofessional and interprofessional approaches to “writing in the health professions” as an emergent interdiscipline. It ends with an expression of hope that this collection will lay foundation stones for future work, building, in time, not just knowledge and practices but also community.
