Leveringstid: Sendes innen 7 virkedager
This book features up-to-date case studies that combine real-life patients and the psychological impacts of anticipatory care such as cancer screening in the modern era. The book identifies the dangers of anticipatory care in medicine and provides compelling and new possibilities for progressing towards a more emancipatory conception of a less knowing, less apparently compassionate, as well as less harmful practice of health care.
This is fascinating reading for academics, students and practitioners interested in critical health psychology, the practice of `scientific' medicine, and the politics of health and social care.
