Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The central theme of "Health Economics, 4e" relates to the costs and benefits associated with various health care choices. Using this theme, the book covers the many changes that have taken place in the field of health care in both the public and private sectors allowing students to gain a very practical knowledge of today's health care systems. Authors Santerre and Neun take a fresh contemporary approach to health economics. The writing style is lively and inviting to students that are intimidated by the term 'economics'. The authors use several real-world applications to make the economic theory more approachable to students.
