In recent years governments around the world have been bending their will toward increasing collaborative practice amongst health care professionals. Although inter-professional learning has been on the agenda since the 1950s, to date there has been mixed success in bringing the disparate range of health professionals in the health care system together in a coherent and systematic way. Surprisingly, there has been limited sociological analysis of this phenomenon with no identifiable seminal text that critical analyses the issues facing the development of successful inter-professional practice in health. This edited collection to redress this by providing the conditions for critical engagement with inter-professional issues through developing a critical sociology of inter-professional health care practice. The core strength of the book is the meditations, case studies, evaluations and theoretical reflections on the practice of inter-professional collaboration in health by pre-eminent scholars from Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. The book provides a sophisticated critical inquiry that uses a wide array of multi-disciplinary conceptual tools to study the phenomenon of inter-professional practice in a way that is easily understood by both instructors and students in the fields of medicine, allied health and nursing.

Culture, Health and Illness: An Introduction for Health Professionals covers basic ideas and research in medical anthropology. The book starts by discussing the scope of medical anthropology and the cultural definitions of anatomy and physiology, including the body structure and its functions. The text describes the clinical significance of food in diet and nutrition, social and cultural aspects of medical pluralism and health care. Doctor-patient interactions; social, psychological and cultural factors associated with pain; and non-pharmacological influences of medication, in relation to placebos, psychotropic and narcotic drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are also considered. The book then covers the type of rituals that relate to health and illness and the management of misfortune. The text also encompasses transcultural psychiatry, the cultural aspects of stress, and cultural factors in epidemiology. The selection is useful to health professions (doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, medical social workers, and nutritionists); those involved in health education or foreign medical aid; undergraduate students taking up these disciplines; and those studying anthropology or sociology.
