Details: Product Description Folland, Goodman, and Stano’s bestselling The Economics of Health and Health Care text offers the market-leading overview of all aspects of Health Economics, teaching through core economic themes, rather than concepts unique to the health care economy. The Eighth Edition of this key textbook has been revised and updated throughout, and reflects changes since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In addition to its revised treatment of health insurance, the text also introduces the key literature on social capital as it applies to individual and public health, as well as looking at public health initiatives relating to population health and economic equity, and comparing numerous policies across Western countries, China, and the developing world. It provides up-to-date discussions on current issues, as well as a comprehensive bibliography with over 1,100 references. Extra material and teaching resources are now also available through the brand new companion website, which provides full sets of discussion questions, exercises, presentation slides, and a test bank. This book demonstrates the multiplicity of ways in which economists analyze the health care system, and is suitable for courses in Health Economics, Health Policy/Systems, or Public Health, taken by health services students or practitioners. Review ‘A valuable text combining health economic theory and its application to real world issues in health care. Folland et al's text has become essential reading on the health economics postgraduate courses I have taught over the last fifteen years.’ ― Steve Parrott, Reader in Health Economics, University of York, UK ‘When you think you've reached the end of the chapter, numerous references take you on a journey with further research - …[The Economics of Health and Health Care] that evokes respect and admiration for health economics’ ― Sime Smolic PhD, Faculty of Economics & Business, University of Zagreb, Croatia ‘The 8th edition of The Economics of Health and Health Care provides a comprehensive survey of the field. Students in traditional economics programs as well as public health and nursing programs will appreciate the insights the book offers into the rapidly growing field of health economics.’ ― J. Mick Tilford, Professor and Chair at the Department of Health Policy and Management, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, USA. ‘This comprehensive text can be adopted in whole or part for a variety of learners, from dedicated economics students to clinicians such as nurses, to engineers entering the health technology industry. Folland, Goodman, and Stano’s book offers a combination of economic theory and relevant examples that bring the issues of health economics and policy to life in the classroom. The exceptional organization of the text lends itself to its use in short courses that don’t allow all the content to be covered, and the clear and engaging writing encourages students to continue reading after a course is completed.’ ― Joanne Spetz, PhD, FAAN, Professor of Health Economics at the University of California, San Francisco About the Author Sherman Folland is Professor of Economics (emeritus) at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, USA.
