The Australian Health Care System 4e, provides students with a fully updated, comprehensive and forward looking overview of the structure and operation of health systems and services in Australia. It adopts a systems approach to analyse how the inputs of Australian health services, such as finances, the health workforce, and the roles of state and federal government - influence the outputs and outcomes, which range from consumer confidence to policy changes.

Written with an emphasis on policy and economic issues, the book provides an extensive overview of the interactions between consumers and providers of health care in Australia. This fourth edition includes expanded coverage of Primary Care, Specialist Health Services, Aged Care and Disability Services and increased pedagogy, such as case studies of sections of the health care system.
