Summary

The landmark health care reform bill passed in 2010 has brought tremendous changes to our health care system. This new edition of the AJN award-winning textbook analyzes our health system in light of these current reforms and provides students of health care policy with a framework within which they can understand and critically assess our health care system. The text strongly espouses the conviction that health care policy is first and foremost a complex and multilayered problem of social justice. It considers the moral foundations of rights to health care in accordance with five alternative social justice frameworks: Libertarianism, Utilitarianism, Marxism, Liberalism, and the Capabilities Approach.
