This book focuses on drug abuse, the ageing of the population, the future of alternative medicine and cuts to public hospital services. It sets out to provide a rational way of disentangling the different viewpoints that confuse and overwhelm every public debate on health policy. The new edition documents and discusses recent research findings, together with new sections on AIDS and quality assurance in health care. The authors have also refined the sociological discussion throughout, making a distinction between two forms of pluralism - "consensus-oriented" pluralism and "conflict-oriented" pluralism. In their analysis, the authors examine the way in which social issues are raised and debated from alternative perspectives: consensus, conflict and pluralism. Each reflects a consistent set of beliefs about how power is structured, and identifies different problems and solutions in the provision of health care services. "Health Care Issues" is aimed at students of medicine and nursing, health administration and public health, as well as sociology of health, social work and social policy. "Erica Bates wrote widely on health care issues and was, until her death, a professor in the School of Health Administration at the University of New South Wales. Susie Lindler-Pelz has researched and taught the sociology of health, and is currently a consultant in health care and planning.".
