Health care is a key arena of the modernisation of welfare states. Tighter
resources and a changing spectrum of diseases, coupled with new
modes of citizenship and demands for public safety, challenge the
health care systems throughout the Western world. This book sets out
to examine new perspectives on the governance of health care and to
highlight the role of the professions as mediators between the state
and its citizens.

Meaning in context
Berkhout (2005) argues that the source of pressures on each corner of the Innovation
Triangle differs. Pressure on abatement tends to come from the environmental authori-
ties; pressures on process changes come from competitors and customers; whereas pres-
sures on products come from consumers and pressure groups. Moreover, changes in one
corner of the Innovation Triangle affect changes in both other corners through dynamic
interlinkages (depicted by the arrows in Fig. 2).
