    BookPod - How Much Is Enough? by Enthoven & Smith

    BookPod - How Much Is Enough? by Enthoven & Smith

    Teaser: How much should we spend on people with frailty versus people with mental health problems? Unless we can answer questions like this, we cannot have high value universal healthcare. Alain Enthoven, is mistakenly blamed for suggesting to Margaret Thatcher that the NHS should introduce the purchaser provider split- actually his Nuffield Trust paper advocated the development of accountable care organisations. However, this book is about the work he and colleagues did on creating programme budgets in the Department of Defense (sic) in the US. Originally published in 1971 this is a book of enduring value and lasting relevance. Enthoven details the application, history, and controversies surrounding the Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System.

    BookPod – An Introduction to Quality Assurance in Health Care by Donabedian

Avedis Donabedian's name is synonymous with quality of health care. He unravelled the mystery behind the concept by defining it in clear operational terms and provided detailed blueprints for both its measurement (known as quality assessment) and its improvement (known as quality assurance). Many before him claimed that quality couldn't be defined in concrete objective terms. He demonstrated that quality is an attribute of a system which he called structure, a set of organised activities which he called process, and an outcome which results from both.

    BookPod - Setting Limits Fairly: Learning to Share Resources for Health by Daniels & Sabin

    Teaser: The people we serve would expect resources to be used fairly and reasonably. In this book, Daniels and Sabin outline that we lack consensus on principles for allocating medical resources, and in the absence of such a consensus we must develop and rely on a fair decision-making process for setting limits on health care so we can use resources more fairly.

    BookPod - The Strategy of Preventative Medicine by Geoffrey Rose

    BookPod - The Strategy of Preventative Medicine by Geoffrey Rose

    Teaser: The current fashion is for targeting interventions towards those at higher risk. But this is often at the expense of interventions that are targeted at a whole population. Which is best? The population strategy of prevention refers to prevention activities that target a whole population regardless of variation in individuals' risk status, whereas a high-risk strategy targets individuals identified as having elevated risk for some adverse health outcome (e.g. thorough screening). In this classic book by Geoffrey Rose, the pros and cons of each approach are discussed.
