This paper investigates and discusses the role of multimodal communication; especially gesture and facial expressions; in intercultural doctor-patient interactions. Three main phases of typical doctor-patient interactions were studied in a database of recorded interactions between foreign physicians in Sweden and their Swedish patients. The phases were analyzed from the point of view of (i) communicative challenges and (ii) the functions of multimodal communication in each of the phases. Types of content; levels of intentionality and different types of signs are discussed and the discussed functions are exemplified with extracts from the database.

Keywords: multimodal; gesture; health care interaction
