In the closing chapter of the third edition of The Routledge Handbook of Health Communication, the authors consider some of the challenges that are most likely to arise for researchers in health communication. In addition to highlighting these challenges through examples from the authors’ research, they also summarize recent and relevant literature addressing research challenges and point toward solutions or resources to assist in overcoming them. The chapter is organized around different categories of challenges that are likely to exist for health communication researchers: gaining access to participants, working in communities, working internationally, addressing IRB concerns, staying abreast of scientific knowledge production, and navigating complex and evolving publication processes.
