The Relevance of Competence to Policy
This chapter addresses the link between competence and political economy and suggests ways of conceptualizing competence that bear upon research and policy in medical education, specialist-generalist relationships, and clinical narratives in high-technology specialties, such as oncology. And because the cultural authority of American medicine has a global reach, the chapter concludes with an international perspective on the meaning of competence. Two themes developed in the book bear upon the understanding of the culture and political economy of contemporary medicine and its relevance for health policy for the medical commons.
