Category: Medical Academic
Synopsis
"This is an accessible text that will be a useful source for lecturers and students in the field of health studies. The material is coherently organised into three main themes: the politics of provision; setting priorities; and patients and professionals. I was particularly impressed with way in which the authors draw on theoretical insights and on the experiences of different heath care systems in their analysis." Professor Rob Baggott, Director of the Health Policy Research Unit, De Montfort University, UK Who is responsible for the health of the nation?To what extent should the state tackle health inequalities?Is prevention better than cure?,Key Debates in Healthcare explores the answers to these and many more topical questions in healthcare. The book considers eight main debates in healthcare, ranging from the role of the state in the provision of health care to the rights of patients, and the responsibilities each of us have for our own health. The book also examines the different models of health and healthcare delivery, and explores alternative methods of providing healthcare, using the state, the private sector or the voluntary sector. Through these debates the book will help readers explore issues such as health inequalities, health promotion and service delivery, and establish their own perspective on issues of health and society. Written as a core course book, the book includes:Theoretical perspectives: to help you understand the logic and implications of broad social and political arguments related to healthPolicy developments: to show the practical application of ideas in Britain, the United States and in other parts of the worldPerspectives of health professionals: to illustrate the impact of healthcare debates on professional practiceHealthcare scenarios: to assist you to make connections between theory, policy and practice Key Debates in Healthcare is key reading for all those training and studying to become health professionals and looking for a text to help them get to grips with the heart of healthcare provision.
