Biografia

Annegret Hannawa is tenured Associate Professor of Health Communication and Director of the Center for the Advancement of Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety at the Faculty of Communication Sciences (USI, Switzerland), Associate Faculty at the Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health (USA), Honorary Research Associate at Cardiff University's Medical School (UK), and Founding President and Director of Research Affairs of the ISCOME Global Institute for the Advancement of Communication Science in Healthcare (www.iscome.org).

Professor Hannawa obtained her higher educational degrees at San Diego State University (B.A., M.A., Interpersonal Communication and Quantitative Research Methods) and Arizona State University (Ph.D., Interpersonal Communication, Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods) in the United States of America. Prior to joining the faculty at USI, she served as Assistant Professor of Health Communication and Empirical Research Methods at Wake Forest University in North Carolina.

Professor Hannawa’s scientific expertise lies in the domains of interpersonal communication competence, healthcare quality and patient safety, and advanced research methodology. Her research agenda focuses on transdisciplinary approaches to optimizing health care delivery, and positive health outcomes that can be achieved through competent interpersonal interaction. Her most recent grant (funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation) conceptualizes and operationalizes Medical Error Disclosure Competence (MEDC) as an empirical construct. Furthermore, she has developed the Hannawa SACCIA Typology Communication Errors in Healthcare and a Tool for Retrospective Analysis of Critical Events (TRACE), which operationalizes a theoretically framed, interdisciplinary conceptualization of medical error. Her research also examines physicians’ verbal and nonverbal communication styles with patients that facilitate positive and negative physiological (e.g., patient and physician well-being), psychological (e.g., rumination, distress, feelings of guilt), relational (e.g., trust, forgiveness, satisfaction), organizational (e.g., litigation), and systemic (e.g., doctor-switching) health outcomes. Prof. Hannawa founded and now chairs the ISCOME Global Institute for the Advancement of Communication Science in Healthcare, which actively pursues global, interdisciplinary research collaborations between leading scholars in communication science and healthcare.

Professor Hannawa’s studies have been published in a variety of distinguished journals such as Social Science and Medicine, Health Communication, Journal of Health Communication, Patient Education and Counseling, Communication Studies, Communication Methods and Measures, Swiss Medical Weekly, Journal of Family Communication, Western Journal of Communication, and many others. Professor Hannawa's research has been recognized with several international awards. She received the 2016 Jozien Bensing Research Award for outstanding career achievements and impact. Her recent book "Communication Competence" received the NCA Communication Apprehension and Competence Division's 2016 Top Book Award. Furthermore, four of her investigations received “Top Paper Awards” by the U.S. National Communication Association and the Swiss Patient Safety Foundation.
