Synopsis:

The most clinically applicable textbook on the subject of healthcare

With a brand-new, two-color design that complements the already lucid writing style, this new edition of Understanding Health Policy makes the subject of healthcare principles, structures, and financial underpinnings more accessible than ever. Ideal for anyone involved in the industry, from students to clinicians to administrators, it brings you up to date on all the burning issues of healthcare, including government and private insurance issues, access to care, and the machinations of healthcare delivery.

The authors, two doctors internationally recognized for their work on health policy, have provided valuable new information on the pharmaceutical industry, non-physician healthcare workforce, and developments in policy, including Medicare Part D. International in scope, Understanding Health Policy contains questions for review and discussion to facilitate classroom use and to reinforce knowledge for individual readers.
