about

A call for change in healthcare thinking, Healthcare in Transition explores the fundamental currents and tensions behind recent trends in policy, such as shared decision making, coproduction, and personalization. While these trends are often discussed in connection with a transition in epidemiological thought, Alan Cribb argues that they instead embody a philosophical shift—a change in our conception of healthcare and of appropriate forms of knowledge and analysis. As clinical concerns are increasingly nested within social concerns, policy analysis must engage with the multiple philosophical tensions that are now at the heart of the healthcare debate. Cribb’s focus on these key, underlying ideas could not be more timely. Accessibly written and with international relevance, Healthcare in Transition will help fuel a shift from a delivery model of healthcare to a deliberative one.
Alan Cribb is director of the Centre for Public Policy Research and professor of bioethics and education at King’s College London. He is also a professorial fellow at the Health Foundation.
