Samfunnsvitenskap for helse- og sosialfagutdanningene
Research output: Book/Report › Book › Education
Today’s health professional cooperates, manages, develops and carries out academic research in important parts of society. To be able to fill this role, the health practitioner should know the societal context in which he carries out his profession. The book introduces university students to central topics in social science; sociology, health and IT, international politics and economics. Through a number of examples, the book discusses the relation between practical and theoretical knowledge. Individual and group is defined in light of newer theories of identity. The entrepreneur’s function in wealth creation is discussed. IT/IS in the health sector has the potential to improve organisational practices and free time for more central caring tasks. Big data provides an opportunity to provide more exact diagnostics and offer individual treatment plans.
