Description - Understanding Health Services by Ipek Gurol-Urganci

This book demonstrates the need for contributions from medicine, sociology, economics, history and epidemiology. It also shows the necessity to consider health care at three key levels: individual patients and their experiences; health care organisations such as health centres and hospitals; and regional and national institutions such as governments and health insurance bodies. The book examines: inputs to health services, processes of care, outcomes, organization of services and improving the quality of health care.

This text is aimed primarily at health professionals on Masters programmes in public health, health research, health promotion and similar courses.
