Health, Behaviour and Society: Clinical Medicine in Context by Edited by Jennifer Cleland

Electronic Inspection Copy available here

There is more to a person than a particular symptom or disease: patients are individuals but they are not isolated, they are part of a family, a community, an environment, and all these factors can affect in many different ways how they manage health and illness. This book provides an introduction to population, sociological and psychological influences on health and delivery of healthcare in the UK and will equip today's medical students with the knowledge required to be properly prepared for clinical practice in accordance with the outcomes of Tomorrow's Doctors.
