  • Data Data Everywhere

    2,730.00 2,090.00

    Hospitals, doctors’ offices, and pharmacies are sitting on some very valuable information, your medical information. As health-care providers enter the digital world and computerize their patients’ records in an effort to improve the efficiency and quality of care, they are also building a valuable health research tool. The files in their databases may contain the answers to many medical questions we currently face, but they also contain private information that could potentially be misused. Data Data Everywhere highlights the challenges that lie ahead and proposes a uniquely Canadian framework for striking a balance between the benefits of allowing researchers to access medical information and the privacy concerns of individuals. In addition to contributing toward a sustainable model for secondary use of data in health research, the book contributes significantly to research in this field and serves as an essential comparative reference for similar jurisdictions.

  • Determining Health Expectancies

    19,999.00 3,999.00

    Health expectancies were developed to address the importantquestion of whether or not we are exchanging longer life for poorerhealth – replacing quality by quantity.
    Health expectancies extend the concept of life expectancy tomorbidity and disability by providing a means of dividing lifeexpectancy into life spent in various states of good and badhealth. Being independent of the size of populations and of theirage structure, health expectancies thus allow direct comparison ofthe different groups that constitute populations: sexes,socio-professional categories, regions.

    This book brings together for the first time, the major works ofREVES* over the past ten years. As well as providing comparisons ofthe health of many of the world’s countries, the book includessections on the concepts behind health expectancies and thedemographic transition, the relevance of health expectancies tohealth policy and the different methods of calculating healthexpectancies.

    *REVES is an international organisation of researchers, cliniciansand health planners addressing these issues as well as developingand recommending methods of calculation and furthering the use ofhealth expectancy as a tool for health planning.
    * State-of-the-art coverage of this important health indicator
    * Heavily cross referenced to give the book structure and coherence

    • HEALTH BEHAVIOR AS BASIC RESEARCH Health behavior is not a traditional discipline, but a newly emerging interdisciplinary field. It is still in the process of establishing its identity. Few institutional or organizational structures, i. e., departments and programs, reflect it, and few books and journals are directed at it. The primary objective of this book is thus to identify and establish health behavior as an important area of basic research, worthy of being studied in its own right. As a basic research area, health behavior transcends commitment to a particular behavior, a specific illness or health problem, or a single set of determinants. One way of achieving this objective is to look at health behavior as an outcome of a range of personal and social determinants, rather than as a set of risk factors or as targets for intervention strategies directed at behavioral change. The book is thus organized pri- marily in terms of the size of the determinants of concern, rather than in terms of specific health behaviors, or specific health problems or conditions.With the first part of the book establishing working defmitions of health behavior and health behavior research as basic frameworks, the second part moves from smaller to larger systems, informing the reader about basic research that demonstrates how health behavior is determined by personal, family, social, institutional, and cultural factors. These distinctions reflect some arbitrar- iness: the family, organizations, and institutions, for example, are social units.
  • HHS in the 21st Century: Charting a New Course for a Healthier America

    3,290.00 2,590.00

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) profoundly affects the lives of all Americans. Its agencies and programs protect against domestic and global health threats, assure the safety of food and drugs, advance the science of preventing and conquering disease, provide safeguards for America’s vulnerable populations, and improve health for everyone. However, the department faces serious and complex obstacles, chief among them rising health care costs and a broadening range of health challenges. Over time, additional responsibilities have been layered onto the department, and other responsibilities removed, often without corresponding shifts in positions, procedures, structures, and resources.

    At the request of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, HHS in the 21st Century assesses whether HHS is “ideally organized” to meet the enduring and emerging health challenges facing our nation. The committee identifies many factors that affect the department’s ability to address its range of responsibilities, including divergence in the missions and goals of the department’s agencies, limited flexibility in spending, impending workforce shortages, difficulty in retaining skilled professionals, and challenges in effectively partnering with the private sector.
