Resumo: OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to show how qualitative, linguistic analysis can be purposefully integrated into health communication research, based on the functions and outcomes of medical communication proposed by de Haes and Bensing 2009 [1]. METHODS: This article proposes a theoretical framework advancing health communication research and does not present primary research. The cited papers were selected on the basis of their relevance to the current purpose of the study, without the intention of being exhaustive. RESULTS: Linguistic and conversation analytic research supports the legitimacy of commonly recommended patient-centered communication skills. However, research that directly relates linguistic analysis to certain functions and outcomes of the medical interview is sparse. CONCLUSION: Integrating linguistics into health communication research enhances the evidence base of healthcare communication and helps to develop effective communication training materials. PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Future research designs should purposefully and directly connect linguistic analysis with the functions and the outcomes of the medical interview.
