Lessons from Joan by Eric R. Kingson

Book Description

A book that will benefit everyone, especially those negotiating life-threatening diagnoses; their caregivers, family members and friends; and health care providers and their students. In "Lessons from Joan", Eric R. Kingson tells how his late wife's strength, warmth, humor, and love - and those of many people they met along the way - helped extend life and make it worth living. It is about the fear, hope, and intensity of their lives during the thirty-two months that followed Joan's cancer diagnosis and how Joan and her husband and children maintained their family life during this time. It is about some of the funny, moving and courageous things that happened along the way. And it is about what they did to access compassionate, state-of-the-art care, including aggressive interventions that provided hope and improved the quality of Joan's life. "Lessons from Joan" is not intended as a "how-to" book, but within its pages readers will find lessons and practical advice about how to deal with unexpected life-threatening illnesses.

Social Security and Medicare by Eric R. Kingson Social Security and Medicare, Paperback (January 2000)

Recent policy debates about the future of Social Security and Medicare have been dominated by the issue of personal versus societal responsibility. Significant changes now being considered would increase the level of privatization and tilt these programs away from defined benefit toward defined contribution models.

Social Security in the 21st Century by Eric R. Kingson Social Security in the 21st Century, Paperback (March 1997)

If the social security programme in the US is to survive into the 21st century it may need significant reforms. This text offers an introduction to the basic economic, demographic, and political aspects of social security, and addresses issues such as gender and discrimination and the future.
