- Who is responsible for the health of the nation?
- To what extent should the state tackle health inequalities?
- Is prevention better than cure?,
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 health
- Policy developments: to show the practical application of ideas in Britain, the United States and in other parts of the world
- Perspectives of health professionals: to illustrate the impact of healthcare debates on professional practice
- Healthcare scenarios: to assist you to make connections between theory, policy and practice
