Rate this:
The authors trace the efforts by physicians over time to achieve a monopoly in healthcare, often by subordinating nurses - their only genuine competitors. Efforts by nurses to reform many aspects of health care have been repeatedly opposed by physicians, whose primary interest has been to achieve total control over the healthcare 'system', often to the detriment of patient's health and safety.
