About the Book

Health technology is a pivotal locus of change and controversy in health care systems, and The Problem of Health Technology offers a comprehensive and novel analysis of the topic. The book illuminates the scientific and policy arguments that are currently deployed in industrialized countries by addressing the perspectives of clinicians, health care managers, scholars, policymakers, patients, and industry. And by establishing a dialogue between two interdisciplinary fields--Health Technology Assessment and Science and Technology Studies--Pascale Lehoux argues for re-centering the debate around social and political questions rather than questions of affordability, thereby developing an alternative framework for thinking about the implications of health technology.


About the Author:

Pascale Lehoux is Associate Professor in the Department of Health Administration at the University of Montreal. She is also Adjunct Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the University of Toronto, and she holds a Canada Research Chair on Innovations in Health.
