An Alternative Conceptualization of Health and Health Care: Its Implications for Geriatrics and Gerontology.
Mold, James W.
Educational Gerontology, v21 n1 p85-101 Jan-Feb 1995
The problem-oriented biomedical framework shaping health care should be replaced with a more optimistic, collaborative, humane, goal-oriented approach for geriatrics and gerontology. This perspective uses a functional, open-ended definition of health and views illness and death as essential features of life. (SK)
