About this product
- DescriptionAs issues of resource scarcity become more explicitly ackwledged in the health sector, public health practitioners are recognizing that ecomics can form a vital part of their professional toolkit. Ecomic analysis provides a way of thinking about problems in which the issues of resource scarcity, opportunity cost and broader social objectives such as efficiency and equity can be explicitly taken into account. However, while ecomics can certainly play an important role in policy and management, its application is often complicated. This book discusses theoretical perspectives in health ecomics by developing an appreciation of how ecomic concepts and techniques can be applied in policy making and management in the health sector. The book examines: Demand analysis; Markets and competition; Regulation; Contracts; and Equity in health care. Series Editors: Rosalind Plowman and Nicki Thorogood.
