Children's health policy: Promising starts, disappointing outcomes
Health politics and policy, 5th edition walks you through the inner workings of health care policymaking, from the legislative process to socioeconomic impacts, and reveals both modern and historical perspectives. A collection of writings by some of today's sharpest political minds and policy-makers, the book explores factors that shape the U.S. health care system and policy, such as values, government, and private players, and compares them to other countries for international context. Helpful learning features throughout include review questions and problems, supporting tables and graphs, and special "Consider This" essays that bolster chapter concepts. In an environment of ever-changing policies and politics, the new edition integrates themes of the past and present-day dilemmas with a look to the future of health care politics in America-- Publisher's description.
