Is your Health Care Killing You?
12 Ways to Survive Our Fractured Health Care SystemPaperback - 2006
Our health care is killing us-literally and figuratively-with an out-of-control bureaucracy, massive inefficiency, thousands of preventable medical errors, an unabated profit motive, and our own complacency. It seems as though it will only get worse before it gets better. We must become more educated and involved as consumers, not only to optimize the benefits of medicine but also to avoid harm from those who regulate it and those who administer it. Is Your Health Care Killing You? 12 Ways to Survive our Fractured Health Care System presents an easy-to-follow plan that addresses the use of both conventional and alternative medicine and is designed for the person who wants to assume the active role so necessary to good health-whether you are a care-giver or a care-receiver. It is an essential tool for anyone who wants to survive the system rather than be a casualty of it and get the most from any medicine. Book jacket.
