thesisposted on 2001-01-01, 00:00 authored by Stanley Bruce. Capp
Uses qualitative and quantitative research methods to identify the priorities and expectations that the Geelong community has of its public health care system. Timely access to public hospitals, emergency and aged care services were major priorites for many. Increased taxes were nominated as the best financing method. Community based services were judged less relevant than hospital services but health education and an egalitarian approach to resource distribution was supported. There was strong support for the community to be involved in decision making in the public health care system through surveys or focus groups.
