Williams Healthcare Disparities at the Crossroads with Healthcare Reform
Comprising the combined efforts of the nation's best health policy analysts, researchers, key opinion leaders and clinicians, this book addresses both current and impending legislation and future movements in healthcare. With the knowledge that the problem of disparities extends beyond the present political arena into the larger scope of all aspects of healthcare delivery, the authors provide critical analysis of the causation of disparities, insightful examples of what has worked, and a striking call to action with implementable strategies for advancing equality.
