Regulating the health professions( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years the health professions have been subject to unprecedented regulatory changes. Exposure of poor practice provoked widespread criticism of self-regulation and calls for a system in which the interests of health care consumers and employers are more fully recognized. Examining the historical and contemporary context, Regulating the Health Professions provides an in-depth analysis of professional self-regulation and the implications of regulatory change for the future of health care. Part One sets out general regulatory issues in the healthcare arena with chapters covering the impact of globalization on the professions, the purpose of professional regulation, the legal context of regulation and the significance of professional codes of ethics. In Part Two, issues specific to the different professions are explored through chapters on medicine, nursing, dentistry, the professions allied to medicine, clinical psychology and alternative medicine. This book will be of interest to students, educators and researchers in a wide range of disciplines including sociology, social policy, politics and health studies, and to healthcare professionals and their managers

Professional health regulation in the public interest : international perspectives( )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are significant variations in how health care systems and health professionals are regulated globally. One feature that they increasingly have in common is an emphasis on the value of including members of the public in quality assurance processes. While many argue that this will help better serve the public interest, others question how far the changing regulatory forum agenda is still dominated by medical interests. Bringing together leading academics worldwide, this collection compares and critically examines the ways in which different countries are regulating healthcare in general, and health professions in particular, in the interest of users and the wider public

Professions and professional service firms : private and public sector enterprises in the global economy by Mike Saks( )

12 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professions are increasingly linked with enterprise at a number of interrelated levels. By considering the relationship of professions to the enterprise contexts in which they work, this book reveals the dilemmas posed to professional groups, and the opportunities and constraints that can arise in their organisational frameworks. Addressing both private and public sectors, this collection explores questions including: what are the implications for the culture, practices and identities of professions of working in enterprise contexts, including with increased globalisation? Are professions becoming more entrepreneurial in a knowledge economy? What are the tensions between professionalism and enterprise and how are these resolved? These are themes that are extremely important to professionals and their managers, especially with the rise of large-scale professional service firms serving corporate clients with truly global reach. This cutting-edge collection will be of interest to researchers, educators and advanced students studying professional behaviour in fields such as business studies, management, organisational analysis, public administration, political science, social policy and sociology, as well as students on focused programmes of professional study in fields such as health, law and social care

The professions, state and the market : medicine in Britain, the United States and Russia by Mike Saks( )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2020 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shedding light on the links between the professions, the state and the market - and their implications for the public in terms of professional practice - this study adopts a neo-Weberian perspective, in which the professions are seen as a form of exclusionary social closure based on legal boundaries established by the state. To illustrate the overarching theme, it considers how healthcare in general, and medicine in particular, is organised in the public and private arenas of three societies with different socio-political philosophies: namely, Britain, the US and Russia. As such, it examines the varying extent to which the development of independent professional organisations has been enhanced or restricted in public, as compared to more privatised, social contexts

Profession : a key idea for business and society by Mike Saks( )

"Profession, professions and professionalism have taken integral roles in business and society. In this book, Mike Saks provides a thorough overview of this concept through analysis of a range of professions, including accountants, doctors and lawyers. The book offers a critical analysis of privileged occupational groups in modern societies. Anticipating a positive role for such groups in the years ahead, the book provides a comparative account of conflicting theoretical perspectives charting developments in an accessible, multi-disciplinary style.
