Challenges in implementing the C-reactive protein test in the primary care consultation and implications for antibiotic prescription
Anna Lindström, Professor of Language and Social Interaction, Uppsala University.
In this talk I will present ongoing research that focuses on how doctors introduce the C-reactive protein test and convey results from the test to patients who are seeking care for symptoms of respiratory tract infection. The analysis explores how the test is used to rule in or rule out bacterial infection and how communicative practices during the medical consultation can help us better understand the social and linguistic mechanisms of antibiotic prescription. The study is one of several studies in the research project Antibiotic prescription in Swedish primary care consultations. Principal investigator: Anna Lindström, Uppsala University. PhD student: Klara Bertils, Uppsala University. Affiliated researchers: John Heritage, University of California, Los Angeles, Rebecca Barnes, University of Oxford and Thomas Tängdén, Uppsala University. The research project is partially funded by Uppsala Antibiotic Center.
