Bosanquet / Sikora The Economics of Cancer Care

This book examines the interaction of economics and the delivery of cancer care in the global context. It analyses the causes of tension between those paying for care, those providing the care and those marketing drugs and devices. The concept and requirement for rationing is examined in different economic environments. As cancer increases in incidence and prevalence, the economics of providing care becomes a more important subject than ever before. Written by a leading health economist and oncologist, this is the first comprehensive book on the economics of cancer care and is essential reading for health professionals and policy makers alike.
