The Sociology of Healthcare provides an up-to-date account of the social factors that influence health and illness, while simultaneously introducing theoretical perspectives in sociology in such a way as to ensure there is integration with the professional issues and concerns of health workers. The book draws heavily not only from theoretical and empirical studies in sociology, but also from research studies and policy debates reported in the professional journals in medicine and nursing.
