Description

This chapter considers the concept of expert discourse practice and suggests that discourse coherence is a criterion indicative of the expert discourse practitioner.  Moreover, practitioners in  the healthcare workplace whose expertise is  revealed through their discourse are not necessarily expert clinical practitioners.  In the same way, practitioners whose clinical skills demonstrate expertise may  not necessarily display expert discourse skills.  Experts in one situation are not  necessarily experts in other situations.
