Humanizing Healthcare ReformsLooking at the current turmoil facing contemporary health care systems worldwide, resulting from relentless imposition of financially-based performance indicators, the author argues that a return to a values-based approach to healthcare will create positive transformation. Writing from the fresh perspective of social anthropology, the author takes a highly pragmatic approach to practice, emphasising the importance of values such as compassion, solidarity and social justice.
