CACE 2017 – International Meeting on Conversation Analysis and Clinical Encounters
CACE is a biennial international meeting for academics and clinicians interested in the application of conversation analytic (CA) methods to communication in medical care. Days one and two begin with plenary talks and then showcases applied CA research alongside the opportunity to participate in small group sessions working with a variety of clinical data. On the third day of CACE, we invite clinicians and other interested parties to join us, and our programme is designed to be of special interest to them – to showcase how the perspective and methods of CA can contribute to our understanding of medical practice, to improving the effectiveness of communication and in the design and evaluation of clinical trials.
The CACE conferences have evolved a certain ‘style’; they are relatively small – numbers are capped, there are plenty of opportunities to discuss papers and to work with and explore a wide variety of original data. So there is a real emphasis on participation, interchange, sharing research ideas and findings – as much of a ‘hands on’ approach as is possible within the constraints of such a meeting.
