Interpretive Studies in Healthcare
and the Human Sciences
Aimed at both scholars in the human sciences and health care practitioners, this series examines current issues in the practice of healthcare, both in the United States and internationally. The series encourages interpretive, theoretical approaches to these issues, specifically interpretive phenomenology, critical social theory, and feminist and postmodern discourses.
