  1. Disablement and the ideological crisis in health care.

    Article - En anglais

    Disablement from chronic illness presents medicine with a constant reminder of the limits to its therapeutic effectiveness, and challenges the political legitimacy of Welfare States.

    In this regard, chronic illness forms a crucial component of the « crisis » in health care.

    In this paper I look at the different ways in which disablement stimulates this crisis-for medicine, for political economy, and for disabled people themselves.

    In looking at responses to the crisis I detect a certain reluctance, or inability, to move away from an atomistic perspective which underpins much of our thinking on health and social policy, and much else besides.
