Projects

The projects developed by HR Lab can be divided mainly into two areas: Core Research and Applications.

Core Research includes the study of argumentative practices in clinical settings; the identification and description of dialogue moves in relation to different communicative aims; the identification and description of relevant dialogic strategies in relation to different clinical settings and clinical goals.


     > Dialogues in clinical settings

Applications includes different ways in which results from the core research can be translated to the professional or public contexts.


     > Implementation of research in the clinical practice

     > Telehealth / Artificial Intelligence
     > Dissemination
     > Healthcare professionals training
