Carol Levine and Thomas H. Murray bring together accomplished physicians, nurses, social workers, and policy experts to examine the differences and conflicts (and sometimes common ground) between family caregivers and health care professionals—and to suggest ways to improve the situation. The Cultures of Caregiving provides needed answers in the contemporary crisis of family caregiving for professionals and students in medical ethics, health policy, and such fields as primary care, geriatrics, oncology, nursing, and social work.
