Book Description University College Dublin Press, Ireland, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Health Policy and Practice in Ireland traces the development of Irish health care services and practices, and the role that different conceptions of disease and different institutional actors have on them.
