At some point in our lives, all of us are likely to be personally affected by a mental or physical health condition. In a vulnerable situation such as this, we would all want to be given the necessary health-related information in a satisfactory way. The healthcare communication network is the first network to analyze healthcare communication in several languages and cultures within the framework of CEEPUS. The instructors, researchers, healthcare professionals and students involved in this network are familiar with the intercultural and interdisciplinary approaches to medical communication. The activities of the network include instruction and interdisciplinary research of medical terminology, communication, translation, interpreting, and languages for specific purposes. Through mobilities, the network allows for the sharing of knowledge, research, and teaching materials. This will result in an improvement in the well-being of patients, the patient-centered communication skills of students and health care professionals, and also the pedagogic and research skills of language teachers.
