Health and Health Care Delivery in Canada

This all-new Canadian textbook answers a growing need in Canadian health care instruction. Written by a very experienced educator in the health care arena, Health and Health Care Delivery in Canada examines the concepts of health, wellness, and illness, and the role that each individual plays in his or her own health care. It also covers population health, the determinants of health, the structure of Canada’s health care system and its main players, and issues and trends facing health care in our country. Clearly written and full of great features designed to engage the student, this is the perfect textbook to teach allied health students about the Canadian health care system.

"I had the opportunity to review the new text Health and Health Care Delivery in Canada and I feel it is a perfect fit for our course MRT 1250 Health Care Systems in Canada in the Medical Radiation Technology program in the second semester."
