CA of Clinical and Health Encounters 2018:


CACHE will be a new biennial international meeting for academics and health providers interested in the application of conversation analytic (CA) methods to communication in clinical care and other types of health and wellness related interactions. This could include provider-patient interactions, family interactions around food and eating, helpline interactions, and interactions in other health and mental health contexts. The conference will be held on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th June 2018 at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, New Jersey). It is designed to complement and alternate with the highly successful CACE (Conversation Analysis & Clinical Encounters) conferences held in the UK and Europe. The plan is to start small with a two-day event, and with an emphasis on data sessions as well as papers.

Friday and Saturday will begin with plenary talks and then research papers will alternate with small group data sessions. Our plenary speakers will be Rebecca Barnes and John Heritage. On Saturday afternoon, we will invite clinicians and other interested parties to join us, and our program will be designed to showcase how the perspective and methods of CA can contribute to our understanding of clinical and health practices.

We welcome submissions for a) oral presentations of work in progress or recently completed studies, or b) proposals to host small group data sessions working with video or audio-recordings and CA transcripts of clinical or healthcare communication. The slot for papers will be 30 minutes – 20 minutes for the talk and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. The slot for data sessions will be 90 minutes.
