about

The costs of health care are much debated, but any study of these costs require measurement of what has been achieved by the health care. The results of health care have come to be known as 'health outcomes' and this book discusses the multiple angles involved in defining and measuring theseoutcomes. This book is deliberately cross-disciplinary, and looks at the topic thoroughly from the perspectives of different academic and practical angles.
Helen Macbeth, Principal Lecturer in Anthropology, Oxford Brookes University.
