Gold Standard : Challenge of Evidence-Based Medicine and Standardization in Health Care - 03 edition

Gold Standard : Challenge of Evidence-Based Medicine and Standardization in Health Care (ISBN10: 1592131883; ISBN13: 9781592131884)
ISBN13: 978-1592131884
ISBN10: 1592131883

Summary: Few things make people react more strongly to the changes going on in health care than the word standardization. Critics shudder at the mindless sameness of standards, while supporters dream of a world in which standardized "best practices" open up a world of efficient health care delivery. The Gold Standard takes up this debate to investigate the real meaning of standardization and how it affects patients, doctors, and the institution of medicine.
R> Showing that standards are not about less or more skills, or more or less uniformity, but rather about a redefinition of autonomy, patients, and relationships, Timmermans and Berg show instead that they are about creating new worlds of medical treatment. Cutting through the hype and fears, the authors show where the true powers of standardization lie. The Gold Standard will become a classic for students of medicine and health care policy, and will be a welcome book for anyone concerned with the future of our system of care.
