Leone Giangiulio (Editor)

Series: Health Care in Transition
BISAC: POL019000

The health care reform debate in the United States raises many complex issues including those of coverage, accessibility, cost, accountability, and quality of health care. Underlying these policy considerations are issues regarding the status of health care as a constitutional or legal right. This book series analyzes the constitutional and legal issues pertaining to the right of health care and the power of Congress to enact and fund health care programs.

Other topics discussed in this volume include the health care workforce and actions needed by HRSA to publish timely national supply and demand projections; health workforce programs in title VII of the public health service act; an overview and funding of public health service agencies; health care for rural veterans; and most frequent procedures performed in United States hospitals.
