The Patient Multiple : An Ethnography of Healthcare and Decision-Making in Bhutan Hardback
Part of the WYSE Series in Social Anthropology series
In the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, medical patients engage a variety of healing practices to seek cures for their ailments.
Patients use the expanding biomedical network and a growing number of traditional healthcare units, while also seeking alternative practices, such as shamanism and other religious healing, or even more provocative practices.
The Patient Multiple delves into this healthcare complexity in the context of patients' daily lives and decision-making processes, showing how these unique mountain cultures are finding new paths to good health among a changing and multifaceted medical topography.
