Abstract

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) commissioned this review to examine the potential for applying social science perspectives on risk to practical medical and health issues. The specific aims were; to synthesise current research on risk and health; to identify research gaps; to identify themes and issues that would be productive for further research. The review draws on existing knowledge and expertise of the authors; a selective review of the literature on risk and health; and consultations with risk researchers and health-related 'users'.
