Interest in policy influences on health care is high, and will remain high as long as health care costs continue to rise and health care reform remains a hot topic in the news. There are inevitable and frequent points of interface between health care public policy and the health professions; in their daily work, clinicians see the problems with the health care system but often feel powerless and unsure how to advocate for system changes. Clinicians and Health Care Advocacy is written by clinicians for clinicians and focuses on how policy works and what individual professionals can do to affect policy. It looks at the facts and processes in an accessible way that employs case-based examples of clinician adavocacy to illustrate its points. The book is nonpartisan and will stay neutral on preferences for one public policy solution versus another (single payer vs. market reform, for example). Instead, it encourages a model of clinicians as responsible for healing not only the individual patient but also the larger health care system in which they work.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This is a timely book on the business of U.S. medicine, how we got to where we are now and where we are going. ... This is a book for everyone who wishes to become conversant with and part of the healthcare debate in the U.S. ... an interesting book on the state of current affairs and one that has some value for libraries in schools teaching medical economics or finance. It is a must read for anyone involved in healthcare advocacy ... ."--- (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Review Service, December, 2011)
