Technological advances have made the observation and analysis of large numbers of medical visits feasible, and indeed, the number of empirical studies of communication between doctors and patients has grown markedly over the last three decades. The Roter Interaction Analysis System (RIAS) has emerged over this period as the single most widely used system of medical interaction assessment worldwide. It has been used in more than 150 communication studies conducted in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. These studies have described communication across a spectrum of medical specialties and healthcare settings, including adult and paediatric primary care, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, surgery, nursing, podiatry, genetic counselling, family planning services, dentistry, and veterinarian practice, as well as cancer care and palliative care. This chapter provides a broad overview of the characteristics of RIAS and illustrates its contribution to the field of cancer communication by reviewing a body of cancer and palliative care studies in which the RIAS has been used.
