|Title:||Decolonising Knowledge: Biomedical Beliefs and Indigenous Medical Practice||Authors:||Moore, Ronnie (Ronald George)||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10931||Date:||1-May-2019||Online since:||2019-07-22T08:57:54Z||Abstract:||Critical discussions about medicine and medical practices are cognoscente of the evolution of such practices and the historical and cross-cultural developments of healthcare systems, or arenas. in a seminal text, Charles Leslie outlined some of the key examples in terms of comparative (Asian) healthcare systems. This sets the scene for future generations of researchers to apply a more comparative understanding, not just to Asian medical systems but to any such cross-cultural analysis of medicine and health care. The text also brings into sharp relief the relative merits and potential drawbacks of applying a unified homogenized overarching approach to medical practice. This chapter therefore concerns itself with the idea of healthcare systems rather than any notion of a single universally agreed medical practice and the meaning this has for “modern medicine” in the contemporary world in the (post) industrial West and in the so-called developing societies.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Apple Academic Press||Start page:||223||End page:||238||Copyright (published version):||2019 Apple Academic Press||Keywords:||Medicine; Medical practices; Healthcare systems; Asian medical systems||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||George A., Babu, S.S., Ajithkumar M.P., Thomas, S.
