Health Policy in Canada, Second Edition

By Toba Bryant


Designed to make the subject of health policy accessible to students, this revised and updated text introduces the recent key developments in health policy in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere. Well-researched and accessible, its twelve chapters guide readers through the various models of policy development and implementation using case studies of actual policies and offering questions that spark critical thinking.

Focusing on the organization of health care delivery in Canada, the impact of economic globalization on health policy, and the impact of the market on health policy, Toba Bryant has developed the perfect classroom resource for students. With new sections on wait times, health funding cutbacks, and the Liberal Party’s new health accord, Health Policy in Canada offers content applicable to a range of health sectors, including nursing, health sciences, medicine, and social work.
