Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Constructs a framework within which to understand the roles of consumerism and professionalism in health care, and to investigate their competing sets of standards: why consumers and professionals intuitively perceive some standards as higher or lower than others. The examples are drawn from the British medical system, but the principles should be applicable elsewhere. Of interest to most anyone in the health care profession. Distributed by Taylor & Francis.
