The Ethics of Making Space for Non-Conformist Minds and Bodies in Healthcare
Hansen, Nancy E.; Janz, Heidi L.
Developmental Disabilities Bulletin, v37 n1-2 p29-43 2009
This paper investigates the place of the disabled body in health care provision. Increasingly, differences in cognition and physicality are being re-framed and mediated in terms of social value. Disabled people have had little input in developing the space in which we find ourselves at present. We examine various historical, cultural and social perceptions underlying this debate.
