Economics Medicine and Health Care

Gavin Mooney

The book is suitable for Health Economics options within undergraduate and postgraduate economics degrees, and for use on Health Management, Nursing and Medical degrees. It is also appropriate for post-experience courses for health professionals. Professor Mooney, one of the leading scholars in health economics, introduces simple economic concepts and shows how an understanding of them contributes to health service policy-making. The book's approach and coverage is strongly international, and care is taken throughout to make the text easily accessible to readers with no prior knowledge of economics.
