Summary

This is the textbook of choice for an overview of the US health care system. The contributors address emergent and recurring issues -- such as national and local health care reform, primary prevention, Healthy People 2000, alternative medicine, multicultural issues, hospital organization, OBRA, DSM-IV, ethics, physician-assisted suicide -- with a complete public health and health policy perspective. The sixth edition is fully updated, comprehensive, and classroom user-friendly. Each chapter now includes learning objectives, a topical outline, a list of key terms, and mini-case studies for further discussion.


Summary

Contributors examine both emerging and recurrent issues from a wide public health and health policy perspective, in sections on perspectives, settings, system performance, and futures. They investigate areas such as financing for health care, mental health services, government's role in health care, and ethics. Can be used for course work in health care, as a reference for administrators and policy makers, and as a standard for in-service training programs. This sixth edition is updated and includes learning objectives, a topical outline, key terms, and mini case studies. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
