Reflections on contemporary medical professionalism; an exploration of medical practice as refracted in doctors’ narratives

Sharon Spooner
Background During a period of continuing changes in society and increasing availability of medical information, publication of patients’ views on experiences of health and illness have gained greater prominence. By contrast, studies of medical perspectives have tended to concentrate on reported discontent and implications for workforce planning while leaving broader insights and concerns under-investigated.
