    Description:

    This new edition further clarifies health policy formulation, implementation, and modification. The policymaking process is brought to life through excerpts from congressional testimony, news stories, executive orders, legislation, and other documents related to real-world policy issues. Readers will acquire the background they need to analyze the effects of health policies and influence the policymaking process. Thoroughly updated and revised, this edition illustrates key points using contemporary policy issues as examples, including FDA action against the pharmaceutical industry, smoke-free laws, stem cell research, oversight of medical devices, and health insurance; includes expanded discussion of analyzing the public policy environment and influencing the policymaking process through interest groups; connects concepts to current events by using examples from the development of health reform policy; discusses how healthcare leaders can respond to legislation by effectively managing resources and includes insight on managing in public-sector environments; and includes expanded coverage of the determinants of health and their relevance to the policymaking process
