Communication is central to pediatric care. Conversation analytic (CA) studies of recorded naturally occurring pediatric interactions contribute distinctive understandings; however, to date there has been no detailed review of CA’s unique contributions. We searched Medline, PsychINFO, Sciencedirect, Google Scholar, and the EM/CA Wiki database, identifying 74 empirical articles across diverse areas of pediatrics. Our state-of-the-art review highlights CA of clinician and caregiver conversations about a child patient, in addition to those involving the child. The findings have the potential to enhance clinical practice by illuminating how healthcare tasks are practically accomplished and enrich our knowledge of children’s participation in consultations by revealing the mechanisms that constrain and enable their involvement. We call for better synthesis of findings with broader CA literature (e.g., nonclinical child interactions, adult triadic clinical encounters, and fundamental knowledge of social interaction). We appeal for increased support for scholarly work in non-Western settings, and emphasize scope for applied initiatives. The data reported are in multiple languages.
