Essential Readings in Health Policy and Law is a compilation of carefully selected readings — book chapters and articles, case law, statutes and regulations, and public policy “tools” such as health budget proposals — meant to allow for deeper analysis of the topics covered in Essentials of Health Policy & Law, yet also serves as an excellent complement to any text on health policy.
Featuring the thought-provoking perspectives of individual authors, policymakers, and judges that span the spectrum of political and social thought, this collection of readings will stimulate discussion and group reflection among your students. The book is divided into five broad parts:
Part 1 provides a basic overview of public health;
Part 2 covers topics in health care quality, an area of critical policy and legal importance, particularly as it relates to information technology;
Part 3 centers on the intersection of policy and law with medicine and ethics, including the evolution of public health ethics;
Part 4 offers several resources on the topic of health system reform;
Finally, Part 5 is a series of resources collectively called “Tools for Health Policy Analysis”.
These include practical articles describing the methods—and potential pitfalls—of policy analysis, as well as examples of the administrative regulations, informal government memoranda, and budget proposals that serve as important instruments in a policymaker’s toolbox.
