Abstract The articles presented in this special issue bring attention to important sociocultural variables and language strategies present in the ever-changing and complex health care system. These articles were selected from the health communication symposium of the 14th International Conference of Language and Social Psychology held in Hawaii in 2014. The articles each concentrate on different aspects of health communication and employ different theoretical and analytical approaches, but they all call for more education and better interventions to improve relations in the health context and patient care.
