This volume contains 16 short papers presented by leading scholars at a recent EAHMH workshop, together with the final report and recommendations that arose from that workshop.
Convened to discuss the nature of European co-operation and future research in the history and philosophy of medicine and health, the workshop featured many wide-ranging proposals for furthering both research and education in the field. The papers assess emerging fields of study as well as new approaches to traditional fields, and consider ways to increase and improve study and training across international and interdisciplinary boundaries.
