#MeToo Merch – Health Care Politics, Policy, and Services: A Social Justice Analysis, Third Edition: A Social Justice Analysis

This AJN award-winning textbook helps readers understand and critically assess the U.S. health care system and policies. With a focus on the prevalence of disparities in health and health care, the book reviews the historical evolution and organization of our health care system. Several social justice theories are used to critically evaluate current U.S. health care systems and policies, providing readers with various perspectives of the field. Extensive coverage of our health care system’s structures, finances, and performance on a variety of population health indicators provides the necessary background, frameworks, and principles through which the adequacy of alternative health care system financing strategies can be analyzed.

  • Analyzes the current U.S. health care system and policies from several social justice theories, providing a critical examination of the field.
  • Examines the historical evolvement of the U.S. health care system, its financing and health care delivery structures, and the prospects for health care reform.
  • Analyzes disparities in access to health and health care by race, ethnicity, class, age, gender, and geography.

  • Updated data on long-term financing and expenditures including baby boomers’ increased demand for long-term services and expanded entitlements for the disabled.
