   schema:description ""The importance of the doctor-patient interaction in medical practice has become the focus of much recent study and debate. "Patient-centered medicine" has become a new conventional wisdom in medical practice. The power relations involved in doctor-patient interaction have been stressed by recent feminist and critical work in medical sociology. Silverman's important new volume provides a carefully researched and analytically sensitive view of how doctors and patients in fact relate. Among the key themes of the book are the way in which doctor-patient conversation varies according to the patient's medical history and method of payment; the problems implicit in pediatric medicine when parents and children are viewed as social actors with psychological propensities; and the difficulties intrinsic to reformist medical practice and patient-centered medicine. This book is essential reading for scholars and students in the fields of medical sociology, medical social work, and professional medical training."--Publisher."@en ;
