Sociology of Health & Illness
There are twelve chapters in all including introductory and final concluding chapters by the editors which "top and tail" the collection of contributions nicely. The majority of these chapters have selected discussants'' responses which in the main are refreshingly critical. The chapters cover a range of disciplines and health service specialism (medicine, genetic counselling, pharmacy, management, nursing) some of which have been much neglected in academic writing.
...this book will be valuable to nurses who are interested in professional ethics, particularly those who work in the UK NHS.
