Health and Society in Video
"Excellent. . . All are high-quality videos of substantial depth. . . This resource is a welcome addition of consistently reliable, trustworthy content. . . Highly recommended." - CHOICE
The collection bridges the often significant gap between science and public understanding, presenting the realities of illness, treatment and the modern healthcare system around the world, and examining the tumultuous history of society’s response to pandemics and other health crises. Users will explore first-person accounts by patients, physicians, family members, and care providers—real-life case studies of disease, trauma, neglect, chronic illness, age-related conditions, congenital abnormalities, and environmental illnesses.
Titles include Cancer Knockout (Danish Broadcasting Corporation, 2010), Selling Sickness (Fanlight Productions, 2004), A.I.D.S. at 21: Is Anybody Listening (Aquarius Health Care Media, 2004), Where Did I Put My Memory? (Point du Jour International, 2010), Death on Request (Icarus Films, 1994) and hundreds more.
