Can look from a multiple perspectives.]
Ideology is not something theoretical, in fact it forms decisions
What ideologies underpin health and social care systems?
Well-fare, child care benefits, OD+, etc.
Canada is the only country in the world that offers Universal healthcare
without pharma-care
(Critical) Health Studies:
Knowing together: questions posted by the Health Studies Epistemic
Community
What constitutes health, illness, and care?
What ideologies underpin health and social care systems?
What health challenges do individuals and communities face?
What historic conditions and emerging dynamics are shifting our experience
of health and illness?
Disciplinary in Health Studies- what are they?
Multi: interaction is very limited. Example: salad bowl, you can see the tomatoes,
cucumbers, and lettuce.
Inter: sharing of knowledge, practices and theories. Shared perspective. Do not really
know where the boundaries are. Public health falls in this segment.
Trans: collaborative work that addresses the work. Mixes quantitative and
qualitative. You do not see the ingredients in the cake (egg, sugar, etc.)
Transdisciplinary in Health
An epistemic community forms around a common conceptual framework that:
Combines disciplinary knowledge
Combines knowledge from different conceptual fields (caring studies,
cultural studies, etc.)
Combines knowledge from different professional domains
Rigorous use of mixed-methods: quantitative and qualitative
Collaborative and often participation from multiple stakeholders
Why Disciplinarily approaches?
Resolve a real world problem
Resolve complex problems
Offer multiple perspectives
