Momentous changes have taken place in the governance of health services. Notably, doctors now share their once unchallenged power with a host of new decision-makers. This book provides a comparative analysis to the health systems of different Western countries from a political science perspective. As such, it makes a significant contribution to the debate on the current crisis in administering and funding the health services.
On the macro level, three chapters address the methodological problems of policy analysis in the health sector; compare national standards of medical behaviour and action; and evaluate the relationship between government intervention and technological innovation in the delivery of medical services.
