AnnotationThe Sociology Teachers Group from London Medical Schools provide a concise introduction to topics thought to be the most important for health students. These topics are grouped into six sections. Part I is on health and illness as social concepts. Part II, on social factors in medical practice, includes chapters on the doctor-patient relationship, death and dying, and hospital and patients. Part III, on social structure and health, considers inequality and social class, ethnicity, the family, women as patients and providers, and older people and health. The final three parts consider: deviance and social control; organisation of health services; and measurement and evaluation in health. (RH).
