The Allied Health Professions A Sociological Perspective

The Allied Health Professions – A Sociological Perspective

The allied health professions have gained legitimacy through the pursuit of research evidence and the standardisation of practice. Yet there is still very little analysis or understanding of these professions.

Adopting a theory of the sociology of health professions, Susan Nancarrow and Alan Borthwick explore the sociological, economic, political and philosophical pressures that have shaped the allied health professions. Drawing on case studies and examples from occupations including optometrists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists to emerging vocations, including pedorthists and allied health assistants, this book offers an innovative comparison of allied health professions in Australia and Britain.

By telling the story of their past, this original book prepares the allied health professions for a new and different future.
