Language is important in all walks of life and has changed hugely over the years because
of how humans communicate.
In this episode I look at its importance and its role in health and medicine, nuances in language and how we can try to work out what someone means from what they say.
You can cross reference to my episode on Consultations which overlaps with this nicely and covers the way in which we communicate.
