Health and the Good Society

Oxford University Press

This chapter makes a case for a new conception of health education, which properly reflects a diffused health agenda and diffused responsibility. It also considers some of the dilemmas facing educators in this area. It calls for an education for action which: (i) is based upon treating people as subjects not just as objects; (ii) is based upon broader and more self-consciously debated notions of what might count as valuable ends; and (iii) is closely linked to genuine mechanisms of inclusion in health-related decisions-making.

Keywords:   healthcare, health agenda, healthcare ethics, health education models
