  1. Practicing oncology in provincial Mexico : a narrative analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper examines the discourse of oncologists treating cancer in a provincial capital of southern Mexico.

    Based on an analysis of both formal interviews and observations of everyday clinical practice, it examines a set of narrative themes they used to maintain a sense of professionalism and possibility as they endeavored to apply a highly technologically dependent biomedical model in a resource-poor context.

    They moved between coexisting narrative frameworks as they addressed their formidable problems of translating between theory and practice.

    In a biomedical narrative frame, they drew on biomedical theory to produce a model of cellular dysfunction and of clinical intervention.
