Health, Illness, and Medicine in Canada
Oxford University Press, 2008 - 446 Seiten
A well-written, student friendly text, Health, Illness and Medicine in Canada provides students with insight into the issues surrounding the sociology of health, illness and medicine in Canada. Part one addresses the major sociological approaches of structural functionalism, symbolicinteractionism, feminist theory, and conflict theory. Part two shifts focus to more immediate issues relating to sociology of health and medicine - social inequity, disease, and death, while taking a first-hand look at the experience of being ill. This section also features a unique case study onwomen and cancer. Part three of the text is devoted to the sociology of medicine, and takes an extensive look at pertinent issues such as social constructs of scientific and medical knowledge and medical practice, medicalization, the medical profession, the roles of nurses and midwives in a changinghealth-care system, complementary and alternative medicine, and the medical-industrial complex.
