Bibliography, etc. Note:
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Formatted Contents Note:
Introduction : health care in Canada : what works? what needs to be done? -- Defining our terms : what is health policy? what is health? -- What is health care? -- How is health care paid for and delivered? -- How does Canada do it? -- Health care in Canada : international comparisons -- How should we decide what is worth paying for? -- Pressing issues -- Treating health care : how can we make it better? what might make it worse?
Summary, etc.:
"Health policy is inherently interdisciplinary. While working with colleagues and students, Raisa B. Deber, has conducted research on a variety of issues that have a direct influence on Canadian health policy. Treating Health Care is intended for both the informed and non-expert reader wishing to understand the Canadian health care system. Building on key issues surrounding heath care, Deber fills the gap in the existing literature by providing accurate information regarding relevant topics, key concepts, and international comparisons. An experienced teacher of health policy and expert with the Health Evidence Network of Canada, Deber favours analysis over advocacy to unpack Canada's health care system. Instead of stressing politics, and the history of the health care system in Canada, Deber provides a comprehensive overview that is useful in not only understanding the state of the current system, but in understanding and evaluating future reforms."-- Provided by publisher.
