Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Nursing and Midwifery by Jon Adams

Book Description

This book explores the historical, social, political and cultural facets of integration between complementary and alternative medicine and nursing/midwifery. It examines the ever-expanding integration in relation to: * the role and conceptualization of the patient * the role and responsibilities of different professional healthcare providers (nurses, midwives, alternative therapists, etc) * the future provision and approach of nursing and midwifery practice * the challenges and opportunities currently facing healthcare systems as a result of integration. This innovative book provides the first critical overview of this important field of health research. It is important reading for medical sociologists, nurses and other health professionals - as well as students in these areas - with an interest in complementary and alternative medicine.
