The Rationalisation of Healthcare in Modern Sport: From Policy to Practice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

While the discussion draws upon a breadth of research by sociologists of sport who have examined sports medicine practices, the chapter draws heavily on the UK model of sports medicine care in high-performance sport and thus the conclusions may not be wholly transferable to non-UK and non-sports contexts.
