Easy Healthcare Set Three

Without a doubt, healthcare in the United States today is a challenge. Changes in the law, bureaucracy, and mounting paperwork overwhelm both doctors and patients. Doctors have to do more with less and often feel they have less time with the patient. 


Patients must cope (often alone) with the maze of information, choices, and paperwork. A “real” doctor‒one who takes time to talk to the patient, meets with the family to discuss options, and is available when emergencies arise–is rare. More often patients’ healthcare experience is a “corporate” one. They receive care from a group of providers who must pack their schedules with patients and sacrifice time with individuals to process the endless paperwork required by legal, regulatory, and insurance company policies. 


So, how does a patient get a handle on all this? How do you swim when a medical crisis throws you into the deep end? Taking charge of your healthcare and that of your loved ones is the key to successfully navigating the system and getting the care you need without losing your way. And in HealthSpin’s Easy Healthcare Box Set (Before You Get Sick, Your Hospital Stay, and free bonus What You Need First) you’ll find the tools you’ll need to do that.

Lawrence O. Gostin’s seminal Public Health Law is widely acclaimed as the definitive statement on public health law at the turn of the twenty-first century. In this bold third edition, Gostin is joined by Lindsay F. Wiley to analyze major health threats of our time such as chronic diseases, emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, bioterrorism, natural disasters, opiod overdose, and gun violence.  The authors draw on constitutional law, administrative law, local government law, and tort law to develop their conception of law as a tool for protecting the public’s health. 
 
The book creates an intellectual framework for modern public health law and supports that framework with illustrations of the scientific, political, and ethical issues involved. In proposing innovative solutions for the future of the public’s health, Gostin and Wiley’s essential study provides a blueprint for public and political debates to come.

New issues covered in this edition:

• Corporate personhood rights raised in response to regulations of tobacco, food and beverages, alcohol, firearms, prescription drugs, and marijuana.
• Local government authority to protect the public’s health.
• Deregulation and harm reduction as modes of public health law intervention.
• Taxation, spending, and alteration of the socioeconomic environment as modes of public health law intervention.
• Access to health care as a strategy for protecting the public’s health.
• Taxation, spending, licensing, zoning, and shared-use strategies for chronic disease prevention.
• The public health law perspective on violence and injury prevention.
• Health justice as a framework for reducing health disparities and protecting the public’s health.
