Description

Edited by: Margie Lovett-Scott (College at Brockport alumna and faculty member) and Faith Prather (College at Brockport faculty member).


"... a comprehensive overview of healthcare access and delivery in 11 developing and industrialized countries. This accessible text is designed for undergraduate and beginning graduate students in various health-related disciplines. Global Health Systems offers rich and diverse real-life case scenarios, analysis of healthcare systems in an international context, and an innovative Eight Factor Model for healthcare system evaluation. The text’s integrated approach and synthesis-based organizational framework challenges learners to develop their own strategies for analysis and envision creative solutions to current healthcare crises.
Each section is organized to effectively present both the shortcomings and successes of healthcare systems in the countries discussed. The case scenarios offer the opportunity for students to think critically and apply text-based learning to real-world problems. The Eight Factor Model, developed exclusively for this text, allows learners to create their own frameworks of analysis and strategize outcome-based solutions to contemporary issues, including healthcare quality, cost, and access. The text also provides instructors with multiple pathways for evaluating student learning and knowledge acquisition."
