Health Communications (HC) is a fast-growing, potent branch of communications. Previous studies confirm HC's antecedence of clinical outcomes from diabetes to cancer. Phase-I of a longitudinal study extends understanding of the HC process. Using primarily bivariate correlations, it confirms positive associations between a major learning intervention (an HC PG certificate?; a practitioner's communications effectiveness; and a five-indicator model of consequent communications behaviours. It also finds, via regression analysis, that practitioner knowledge transfer and return-on-investment reporting are her most influential behaviours.
