9780729538435: Analysing Health Policy: A Problem-Oriented Approach, 1e

This introductory text explores Australian health policy through a novel, problem-orientated approach. It shows the problem-solving techniques that are used when developing policy and demonstrates the skills of analysis and decision making. Introductory chapters explain the problem-orientated approach to health policy development and introduce the policy making process. These are followed by case studies that explore developments in Australian health policy in priority and topical areas. Chapters illustrate how policy-makers respond to perennial and emerging policy problems and demonstrate problem-solving approaches to the conception, development and implementation of health policy. Of particular concern are areas which are in transition or are highly contested. A team of prominent and expert contributors gives an overview of key issues, analyse the policy responses that have occurred and propose directions for the future. Topics covered span governance, values and specific service areas within major established areas of health policy of national concern as well as emerging problems and developments that have occurred in response to well-known cases.

  • A problem-oriented, analytical approach to policy development and the policy process
  • Topical case studies illustrate how policy-makers respond to problems
  • Contributors include academic researchers, teachers and policy practitioners
  • Ancillary web-based teaching guide incorporates discussion questions, assignment topics and tutorial scenarios
