Managing Diabetes, Managing Medicine : Chronic Disease and Clinical Bureaucracy in Post-War Britain, Hardback Book

Managing Diabetes, Managing Medicine : Chronic Disease and Clinical Bureaucracy in Post-War Britain Hardback

Part of the Social Histories of Medicine series

Description

This book is available as an open access ebook under a CC-BY-NC-ND licence. Through its study of diabetes care in twentieth-century Britain, Managing diabetes, managing medicine offers the first historical monograph to explore how the decision-making and labour of medical professionals became subject to bureaucratic regulation and managerial oversight.

Where much existing literature has cast health care management as either a political imposition or an assertion of medical control, this work positions managerial medicine as a co-constructed venture.

Although driven by different motives, doctors, nurses, professional bodies, government agencies and international organisations were all integral to the creation of managerial systems, working within a context of considerable professional, political, technological, economic and cultural change. -- .
