This comprehensive review covers the full spectrum of health care services, identifying up-to-the-minute trends and analyzing options for future policymaking in the wake of diminishing public confidence in past health reform initiatives.
The authors--all recognized as top researchers in the field--draw on their own investigations to address timely topics such as AIDS, women's health, long-term care, and prevention. In addition, they examine important issues including ethics, cost, quality, and access, and tackle controversial subjects such as malpractice, and regulated versus competitive systems. Provides thoughtful reading for anyone concerned with the future of the United States health care system.
