Complexity theory is a collection of concepts, ideas and perspectives developed largely in fields outside medicine. It allows us to study health care delivery using the metaphor of an ecosystem rather than a machine. This timely book explores the ways complexity theory may assist in the provision of clinical healthcare. It explains the foundations of the theory behind complexity, its place in clinical medicine and in the wider scientific context, using examples of its application in current and potential future medical scenarios. Drawing on insights from diverse areas including ecology, evolutionary theory and computer science, itit demonstrates the relevance of complexity to cardiology, diabetes and mental health, to consultation dynamics and decision support, and to the delivery of other aspects of care, through more informed use of health informatics. The increasingly complex arena of clinical medicine requires new models on which to manage uncertainty, recognise and value diversity, and process information. All clinicians and managers in primary and secondary care will find this book useful and engaging reading.Tim A. Holt.
