> Abstract:
> The concepts of uncertainty and uncertain futures have received some attention within medical sociology, but have often been overshadowed by the more dominant emphasis on the concept of risk. Experiences of uncertainties and how they are managed lay at the heart of questions which seek to better understand health and illness behaviours. How people imagine and plan for uncertain futures are important concerns for sociologists, and there is an ongoing need for further empirical and theoretical developments in this area.
