EACH: International Association for Communication in Healthcare is a global organisation dedicated to exploring and improving the ways in which healthcare professionals, patients and relatives communicate with one another.

EACH and its members work together to:

  • Promote effective, patient-centred and evidence-based healthcare communication
  • Provide expertise, resources and skills for health communication education, research and practice
  • Encourage networking between healthcare communication professionals to provide advice and cooperation on health communication projects and education


We are currently experiencing the largest global emergency for a generation. For many people this is a moment of sadness, fear and social isolation. EACH wish to reach out to all of our members and the wider healthcare communication community in this uncertain time. We want you to know that you are not alone, we are here for you.

We hope that the resources we are sharing on our website are helping you with these new unprecedented challenges.

We encourage you to join EACH to help promote effective healthcare communication throughout the world.  EACH members significantly contribute to the body of evidence and best practices in research, education, and implementing effective communication in healthcare for learners, clinicians and health care systems. Through EACH, you can learn from and contribute to improving communication in your own workplace, country or sphere of influence as well as throughout the world.
