‘New Dynamics of Disability and Rehabilitation’ (Eds. Harsløf, Poulsen & Larsen) will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in July 2019. This collection provides a broad coverage of the conditions for medical and vocational rehabilitation in North-Western Europe. It presents analyses that cut across health sciences, medical sociology, disability studies and comparative welfare state research. Through this interdisciplinary perspective, the book explores the changing roles of patients, caregivers, professionals and institutions, and the wider implications of these changes for issues such as user participation, professional autonomy and social inequalities in health.
We invite scholars, practitioners, students and others interested in this field to this interactive seminar, where participants will have the opportunity to discuss some of the book’s studies, in terms of implications for practice, for education and for future research in the field.
