Overview

Untangle the complex interaction when health and social policy issues are intertwined with Health and Social Policy. The contributing authors focus on key aspects of this interaction and present issues in a ”real world” context. In doing so, they identify issues that need to be addressed. Feit and Battle bring together these chapters to highlight the health, medical, and social policy issues and problems facing today’s health care professional and to provide the means for effective interaction.

The authors explore problems from an interdisciplinary perspective. They suggest ways in which other health care professionals define issues and problems and their subsequent decisions--decisions readers can apply to their own situations. Health and Social Policy provides support for professional intervention through practice insight.

With this book, those in public health, social workers, planners, administrators, and policy developers can begin to understand the complexity of the policymaking process and policy implementation in the field. Other topics covered in this book include:

  • cost-effectiveness in policy formulation and analysis
  • planning issues and methods
  • specific factors in implementing health planning policies
  • factors for designing programs for specific populations
  • prevention/intervention issues

    Health and Social Policy illustrates that effective outcomes require an understanding of policy issues and problems inherent in both the health and social welfare fields. It does not offer a prescription for readers to follow. The contributing authors understand that there are no easy answers to the many problems which exist. In this book, they offer a way to untangle and understand the complex of issues in health and social policy.
