  1. State authority, medical dominance, and trends in the regulation of the health professions : the Ontario case.

    Article - En anglais

    The relationships amongst the health professions and between them and the state are rapidly changing.

    I argue that analysis of these relationships has to take into consideration:

    • the fact that medicine played an intermediary role (through medical dominance in health care) between the state and the other health occupations;

    • the permeability of the boundaries of the state and the professions;

    • and the dual nature of professional organizations (as sites of intra-occupational conflict and as possible vehicles of extra-occupational control).

    In Ontario the medical profession partially « mediated » the relationships between « non-physician » health occupations and the state through medical control over other health care occupations.
