Healthcare Disparities at the Crossroads with Healthcare Reform by Richard A. Williams

Building upon the success of Dr. Williams' widely influential book Eliminating Healthcare Disparities in America: Beyond the IOM Report , this new volume takes a fresh and timely look at the state of healthcare reform and the progress and problems we face in the pursuit of healthcare equality. This book focuses on how the elimination of disparities can be accomplished through targeted efforts made within the context of 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.


From the reviews: This book discusses healthcare disparities within the context of healthcare reform. ... The audience includes anyone who has a vested interest in healthcare. ... There is no comparable book on the market. Many books address health disparities but not in the manner this one does. It presents the root causes of disparities, discusses the current legislation, and then presents some living examples within the clinical arena. The backdrop of healthcare reform as a platform for attacking health disparities makes this book unique. (Carole Ann Kenner, Doody's Review Service, May, 2011)

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
