Women's Health: The Commonwealth Fund Survey
Marilyn Falik, Karen Scott Collins
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1996 - Social Science - 361 pages
The results of the landmark 1993 Commonwealth Fund survey demonstrated that women's health is too often neglected. This book, based on in-depth analysis of experiences reported in the survey, provides baseline information on the psychobehavioral factors that have an impact on women's health. Topics addressed include socioeconomic factors that influence health (insurance, employment, poverty), care-seeking behaviors, psychological factors, and aging. Each chapter analyzes the appropriate survey data, presents findings and integrates the relevant literature, draws implications for policy and health care delivery, and identifies issues for further research.
