International Patients' Travel Decision Making Process- A Conceptual Framework

Mohammad Jamal Khan, Shankar Chelliah, Mahmod Sabri Haron
2016 Iranian Journal of Public Health  
Role of information source, perceived benefits and risks, and destination image has significantly been examined in travel and tourism literature; however, in medical tourism it is yet to be examined thoroughly  ...  This conceptual paper helps in establishing model for decision-making process of international patients in developing visit intention.  ...  Thus, a distinctive image of a destination forms in tourists' mind based on strength and weakness of attributes of cognitive and affective components.  ...
