Rural Australia has faced many economic and demographic disadvantages. Advances in medical technology and economic reforms have led to the closure or near closure of many rural hospitals. Since the late 1980s, the Australian government has increased their focus on the quality and functionality of rural health. Most notable was the development of a rural health strategy and the introduction of flexibly funded, integrated health services, otherwise known as Multipurpose Services (MPS). Healthcare Reform and Interests Groups explores the resistance that the MPS's encountered from rural health professionals and rural communities and the critical role of these communities in Australia's healthcare reform.

From the Author:

This book describes my research and findings relating to healthcare reform and adapts Alford's theory of Structural Interest Groups to the Australian rural healthcare setting. 

The book helps us to understand where and how power is located in rural communities and how it plays out when the status quo is challenged.

I am confident the book will be useful to anyone with an interest in rural health care reform and in particular those seeking to understand related theories and research findings..

Reference:  Alford,R. 1975, Health Care Politics, Ideologyand Interest Group Barriers to Reform,The University of Chicago Press, Chicago.
