"The labor process is organized in terms of an interpretative framework that cuts across diverse work sites. This interpretative framework, anchored in intra- and extraprofessional institutions, and reflected in the social structure of the profession (Abbott, 1981), ensures that a particular form of relative autonomy is reproduced in the concrete labor carried out by practitioners operating independently in a market context"[1].

So, is what we need to do then, to define our interpretative framework?
