About this book

Introduction

This introductory text encourages the application of sociological insights in health care. Health processes and outcomes are analysed in terms of social difference, inequality, opportunities and life chances. Key sociological concepts and theories are introduced by using practical exercises and an active learning approach. The book is written in an accessible style so that it can be used as a course text but will also appeal to individual readers at all levels in their career.
