With its wealth of up- to- date evidence and clear explanation of the tehory, this book is an ideal introduction to the political economy and social policy for students who have had no more than a basic grounding in economics

Economic and medical evaluation of health care technologies by A. J Culyer( Book )

13 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too frequently, the largest effective barrier to interdisciplinary communication is jargon. The symposium whose proceedings appear in the following pages sought, of course, to eliminate unnecessary and obscurantist jargon; but it sought also to do something far more ambitious - to confront the intellectual issues that are attached to the use of the word "evaluation" in medicine and health services. To this end a carefully selected group of experts in medicine, epidemiology, and health econom ics was invited to present papers. They were selected for their reputations either as conceptualizers or as empirical evaluators, or - the rarest breed of expert - as both. The context was to be empirical. Three procedures were selected that had been subject to evaluation but that posed rather different types of problem. The first was the treatment of renal failure by dialysis of various kinds. This has a relatively long history of evaluation, with a large literature, and particularly raises broad policy is sues within the health services of Western societies as to - the size of programmes to be provided; the type, location, and mix of treatments; the selection of patients to receive treatment; and the measurement of the success of various strategies. The second was the treatment of duodenal ulcer by a new species of drug - the hista mine Hrreceptor antagonists (specifically, cimetidine)

Public and private health services : complementarities and conflicts( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of the proper balance between the private and public sectors in health care, and the means of financing these sectors, are issues of particular concern in Western industrialized nations. The papers in this volume examine a variety of aspects of the relative performance of public and private services drawing on the varied experience of European countries. Internationally recognized economists explore longstanding issues of how best to model the behaviour of institutions like hospitals. They compare the efficiency of public and private dentistry, homes for the elderly, child care and hospitals. They also examine equity issues and explore the problems involved in measuring the economic size of the health care sectors in different countries and examine equity issues

Measuring health : lessons for Ontario by A. J Culyer( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planning and evaluating any health care program is a formidable task: how do you measure the health of a population? This fundamental question has been approached from various perspectives in medical, administrative, and economic studies. This book provides a guide to health measurement literature and relates it to Ontario's current and prospective policy choices and to the federal context of health indicators and indices to existing statistics in Ontario in a county-by-county survey of the province's health care. He also outlines the kinds of information essential to health assessment but not currently available. The book as a whole emphasizes the importance of health care measurement in the humane and efficient planning of health services. It will be of interest to all concerned with the practice of medicine in the 1980s and the planning of health services at the federal and provincial levels, as well as to those with a special interest in health from the economic, political, and sociological perspectives
Economic evaluation of interventions for occupational health and safety : developing good practice by Roman Dolinschi( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book aims to lay the foundations for a systematic methodology of economic evaluation of occupational health and safety interventions by identifying the main barriers to research of high quality and practical relevance, and proposing a research strategy to overcome them. Context chapters provide a wealth of background material ranging from a presentation of the broad conceptualization of work and health, to suggestions for strategies on how to confront the dearth of data often experienced by occupational health and safety researchers. The institutional and regulatory approaches in different international jurisdictions are covered in one of the context chapters. Specific topic chapters delve into the principles and application of economic evaluation methods relevant to workplace and system level interventions. Study design, type of analysis, costs, consequences, uncertainty, and equity are all covered, providing guidance on meeting many analytical and decision-making challenges. The final chapter synthesizes the summaries, conclusions, challenges, and recommendations from across the book, presenting the synthesis as a reference case." "This book is essential reading for researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and both educators and students involved in occupational health and safety, public health, health promotion, and health economics."--Jacket
Handbook of health economics by A. J Culyer( Book )

28 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook of Health Economics provide an up-to-date survey of the burgeoning literature in health economics. As a relatively recent subdiscipline of economics, health economics has been remarkably successful. It has made or stimulated numerous contributions to various areas of the main discipline: the theory of human capital; the economics of insurance; principal-agent theory; asymmetric information; econometrics; the theory of incomplete markets; and the foundations of welfare economics, among others. Perhaps it has had an even greater effect outside the field of economics, introducing terms such as opportunity cost, elasticity, the margin, and the production function into medical parlance. Indeed, health economists are likely to be as heavily cited in the clinical as in the economics literature. Partly because of the large share of public resources that health care commands in almost every developed country, health policy is often a contentious and visible issue; elections have sometimes turned on issues of health policy. Showing the versatility of economic theory, health economics and health economists have usually been part of policy debates, despite the vast differences in medical care institutions across countries. The publication of the first Handbook of Health Economics marks another step in the evolution of health economics
