A call for change in healthcare thinking, Healthcare in Transition explores the fundamental currents and tensions behind recent trends in policy, such as shared decision making, coproduction, and personalization. While these trends are often discussed in connection with a transition in epidemiological thought, Alan Cribb argues that they instead embody a philosophical shift—a change in our conception of healthcare and of appropriate forms of knowledge and analysis. As clinical concerns are increasingly nested within social concerns, policy analysis must engage with the multiple philosophical tensions that are now at the heart of the healthcare debate. Cribb’s focus on these key, underlying ideas could not be more timely. Accessibly written and with international relevance, Healthcare in Transition will help fuel a shift from a delivery model of healthcare to a deliberative one.
Review Quotes
Mary Catherine Beach, John Hopkins School of Medicine
“Anyone who believes in the importance of a health system being designed to respect persons on an individual and societal level should read this book.”
Stephen Peckham, Centre for Health Services Studies, University of Kent
“This book lays bare the contradictions and paradoxes in health policy thinking that are often conveniently ignored. Essential reading for those interested in health policy and politics and (hopefully) for politicians.”
Joshua Hordern, Oxford Healthcare Values Partnership, University of Oxford
“Cribb is wise to healthcare’s civic context, astute about normative questions, and subtly person-centered—his elegant argument provides lucid guidance to the changing healthcare landscape.”
