Population Health Policy
Population Health Policy provides students with a series of editorials, selections, and case studies and encourages them to examine the practical application of health policies and their resulting health care outcomes. The anthology features a distinct emphasis on demonstrating how changes in health policies have significant impacts on population health.
The opening chapter addresses health policy basics by introducing readers to the health policy process. Later chapters examine global health policy, employer-sponsored insurance and wellness, public insurance and long-term care, and elder care as it relates to health policy. Students read engaging articles about evidence-based management and economic health policy, organizational culture in health care, health disparities and health policies, behavioral change and health policy, and environmental health policy. Closing chapters are dedicated to patient safety and health policy leadership. Discussion questions throughout the text invite further discussion and investigation into the topics explored.
Providing readers with an engaging and thought-provoking introduction, Population Health Policy is an ideal text for courses in health care administration and health policy.
