Editors: Janet B. Garner and Thelma C. Christiansen
Book Description:
Health care and medicine are dependent upon a close interaction with social sciences and professions in order to effectively treat patients. Athough medicines have become more and more targeted in recent times, it is the recovery of the patient which is the true test of the system whether it be in a hospital setting or within a daily societal setting. Such interactions may be psychological or interactions with social organizations essential to phase the patient back into society. This book presents new issues, experiences and research in the field from around the globe.
