"Essentials of Health Policy and Law provides students with a firm foundation of the basics of American health policy and law. This concise and reader-friendly text explores the policy and legal issues impacting and flowing out of the health care and public health systems in three unique ways: First, it emphasizes how the key legal and policy issues at the heart of public health interact with those of the healthcare financing and delivery systems. Second, it describes and discusses public health law and policy issues through the lenses of individual, government, professional, and marketplace autonomy and responsibility. Finally, the text unifies the content of health law and policy with the skills needed to analyze this content."--BOOK JACKET.Teitelbaum, Joel is the author of 'Essentials of Public Health Law and Policy ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780763734428 and ISBN 076373442X.
