Title

  • The history of medicine: a Scottish perspective
Description
  • In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the approach to medicine was vastly different from today. Health is now recognised, at least in most European countries, as a universal right, but what was it like in the past? How did social and political boundaries affect access to treatment, and what were the treatments of the day? This unit examines how Scottish healthcare institutions were influenced by these underlying social, economic, political and cultural contexts.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/history-the-arts/history/history-science-technology-and-medicine/history-medicine/the-history-medicine-scottish-perspective/content-section-0" /> First published on Thu, 20 Feb 2014 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/history-the-arts/history/history-science-technology-and-medicine/history-medicine/the-history-medicine-scottish-perspective/content-section-0">The history of medicine: A Scottish perspective</a>.
