Changing Face Of Health Care


In response to the many changes currently going on in health care, this book offers the combined insight and wisdom of a group of scholars and professionals with extensive experience in the health care field. The book opens with a look at people’s actual experience of health care today, from four different perspectives. It then addresses foundational questions, including the nature of medicine, nursing, and justice. Surveyed next are the changing economics of health care as well as the impact of these changes on such areas as mental health care, long-term care, health care for minorities, and leagal malpractice. The closing of the book assesses from a Christian perspective available constructive alternatives, including creative funding strategies with special attention to the needs of poor persons, physician unions, and the use of “alternative medicine” therapies.
