Abstract: This research is one of the first studies of Chinese primary care doctor-patient communication. The study collected a large data corpus of video-recorded acute-visit consultations from two outpatient clinics of an ordinary Chinese hospital. The analysis uses primarily conversation analysis (CA) method to uncover the moment-by-moment interactional and sequential patterns during primary care encounters; in doing so, contributing to our understanding of the social organization of Chinese primary care medicine.
