Summary Analysing health policy explores Australian health policy using a novel, problem-orientated approach. It shows the problem-solving techniques that are used when developing policy and demonstrates the skills of analysis and decision making.Introductory chapters explain the problem-orientated approach to health policy development and introduce the policy making process. Case studies then explore developments in health policy in both priority and topical areas. Chapters illustrate how policy-makers respond to perennial and emerging policy problems and demonstrate problem-solving approaches to the conception, development and implementation of health policy.
