A Look Inside
Unpaid Annotation
Integrity and Personhood -- Looking at Patients from a Bio/Psycho/Social Perspective examines the dominant ways of looking at patient/clinician relationships in healthcare. By challenging these dominant views, the author can explore presuppositions that are defective. The author further explains how these presuppositions have come to be so readily and uncritically held and reinforced; and, why their implications can have such a profound effect on how we think and act. Using the methodology of philosopher John Dewey, the author proposes an alternative bio/psycho/social approach to understanding the patient/clinician relationship and for resolving increasingly common bioethical issues that arise in healthcare settings.
