Concordance in Medical Consultations considers whether the shift towards letting patients make treatment decisions is what they really want. It provides a concise overview of a wide range of literature and evidence covering such areas as patient involvement, patient consent, compliance and best practice. Adopting a thorough, patient-centred, critical approach this book points to the need for a substantial revision of current policy, culture and practice. Healthcare professionals at all levels and in all settings will find this review invaluable, as will researchers and students of health and illness sociology, medicine and healthcare.
