Title: An ‘indiscriminate use of terms giving rise to confusion’ - shaping British intensive care in the 1960s
Abstract: Care of the critically ill in 1960s British hospitals centred around two concepts: intensive nursing care and intensive therapy. In this paper I will explore their ideology and practice, their relation to each other, and their impact on notions of critical illness.
