Revolving Doors: New Zealandís Health Reforms - The Continuing Saga (Second Edition)
Since the late-1980s, a series of significant reforms has been thrust upon New Zealand’s health sector. The nature of these reforms, together with their rationale, implementation and impacts, were examined in the 2001 predecessor to this book. ‘Revolving Doors: New Zealand’s Health Reforms - The Continuing Saga’ updates the 2001 book with a new chapter on subsequent developments, including the performance of district health boards, and the primary care reforms. The second edition also outlines issues crucial to a high performing health system that have taken second place to health system restructuring: quality, information technology, and workforce management. Finally, the book considers the key challenges facing the government and health care system over the coming years.
