Governance of Health Care Innovation. Excursions into Politics, Science and citizenship
Klasien Horstman, Ewan Dow and Bart Penders (Eds.)
LULU Academic, 2012
This book contains finalist papers from two consecutive cohorts in the “Governance of Health Care Innovation” honours programme at Maastricht University. They cover a diversity of fascinating research issues from a fresh, ‘new graduate’ perspective.
Framed in a narrative methodology, these individual excursions take us on a whirlwind tour through governance controversies in such areas as invention, legislation, vaccination, marketization, coordination or standardization in Public Health.
Along the way we encounter conundrums surrounding cold chambers, steamveins, e-health, telemedicine, sex selection, drug and rice patenting, nano-particles, mental health outsourcing, clinical pricing and genetic insurance from the EU heartland to Brazil, South Africa and Asia.
