about

Medicine, Nursing and the State examines transformations in the relationships between the health professions and the state in an era of restructuring. Changes in professional autonomy and the gendered nature of profession-state relationships are highlighted. The essays locate the interrelationships of medicine, nursing and the state with regards to theories of the professions and to globalization. It is argued that the relationships shown cannot be properly understood outside of the processes of the rise of neo-liberalism and globalization.
By David Cobrun, Susan Rappolt, Ivy Bourgeault, and Jan Angus

From Our Editors

This fascinating volume examines the altering interrelationships of the health system and the state as part of the basic changes in the Canadian political economy. The attack on the welfare state is transforming all health care professions. While nursing is challenging medical power, it faces strong internal obstacles and external restrictions. State actions themselves do not merely arise from state actors, but must be specifically examined and explained. Medicine, Nursing and the State puts state health-care policy within the context of globalization and rising business supremacy.
