Health Care Policy and Practice : A Biopsychosocial Perspective - (Hardcover)
About this item
In Health Care Policy and Practice: A Biopsychosocial Perspective, Moniz and Gorin guide students through the development of the American health care system: what it is, what the policies are, and how students can influence them. The first section focuses on recent history and reforms; section two examines the system’s structure and policies; and the third section explores policy analysis and advocacy, and disparities in health based on demographics and inequities in access to care. The book concludes with a discussion of the impact of social factors on health and health status.
This edition has been fully updated to include the Trump administration’s efforts to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and to integrate content throughout the text on the impact of the ACA in recent years. In addition, new content on health disparities for the LGBTQ community has been added.
