This is the IV edition of the Summer Course on Health and Languages. The subject of language and healing is so complex and broad that it would require in-depth analysis. It can be said that any language planning in the health field should meet three requirements:

1- Situation based on evidence.

2- The focus on people.

3- take into account the local administrative situation, the institutional organization and the social environment.

In this edition the main objective of the course will be research. The research process is proposed here as an option in a broad sense. In this course, the lines of research that can be prioritized in the health field will be identified and information on ongoing projects will be provided. On the other hand, the possibilities of expanding the research and the knowledge derived from it will be exposed. In addition, the possibilities and experiences of incorporating the results of the different investigations into continuous training in language and health will be analyzed. Finally, sharing and disseminating the knowledge generated through research and implementation processes will be approached as an appropriate tool to promote quality and equitable care in the social and health field.


Establish the mandatory nature of research on language management in healthcare activities: identify research opportunities and promote ongoing research.

Promote that social health care personnel, using knowledge based on research and evidence, develop activities appropriate to linguistic diversity in their professional career.

To be a meeting point between professionals and multidisciplinary institutions of different origins, promoting debate and above all collaboration.
