Metadata[+] Show full item record
Two concepts helped and hindered clinicians throughout the 20th Century: 1) the most important and legitimate use of physicians' time is in the diagnosis and cure of disease; and 2) patients are cured of illness through cognitive learning and compliance with rational prescriptions based on biomedical science. What has made these conceptions a hindrance is that they exclude most of what doctors and patients do together.
