Description

Reading group

The first reading group session is aimed at understanding different dimensions of ‘patient needs’. We will discuss this topic using the concepts such as medicalisation bottom-up, biological citizenship, social justice, and patient-citizen-consumers.
The discussion will also be framed by the political desire to build healthy nations, highlighting in particular the personalisation of medicine in a neoliberal context.
