Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Challenging Medicine offers a lively appraisal of the current challenges to the dominance of medicine in the health service and analyzes their effects on the status and practice of health professionals. In particular, it assesses the challenges posed from within the health care system by nurses and managers and from outside forces ranging from alternative practitioners and self-help groups to the women's movement and the media.
Edited and written by experienced medical sociologists, Challenging Medicine will provide a valuable text for medical sociology students as well as for health care professionals in training and in practice.
