CARING FOR HEALTH: HISTORY AND DIVERSITY

Book News, PublicNet: 21 May, 2001

This book considers the historical development of health care from 1500 to the present day. The authors adopt a broad interdisciplinary framework to draw on the most recent research in the fields of medical and social history. The central premise of the book is that the strengths and the limitations of health care systems around the world can only be understood in the light of past practices and structures. For instance, only by reference to the historical record is it possible to understand the reasons for the dominance of acute hospital specialties, the Cinderella status of chronic care, the prejudice against alternative medicine, the difficulties experienced in regulating the medical profession, or in determining the sphere of responsibility exercised by nurses.Published by Open University Press June 2001 ISBN 0 335 20840. 17 pounds 99p. www.openup.co.uk
