CQ Press


530 pages




A team of researchers and practitioners in conducting public opinion surveys, especially related to health policy, examine views of Americans about the country's health system and the policies that shape its future direction. Among the aspects they sample are trust in government and health care institutions, the uninsured and efforts to expand coverage, Medicare and Medicaid, quality of care and medical errors, attitudes about abortion, end-of-life care, emerging infectious diseases, views about racial and ethnic health care disparities, the views of African Americans and Hispanics on health policy, women's perspectives on health care policy, and public opinion on health care reform through the prism of Obama's 2009-10 reform effort.
