Standardisation and Its Discontents

, : Standardisation and Its Discontents. Cognition, Technology & Work 17(1): 89-94

NlmCategory="UNASSIGNED">In discussions of the quality and safety problems of modern, Western healthcare, one of the most frequently heard criticisms has been that: "It is not standardised."
