Questions for Chapter 4 HCDS

Please answer the following questions with comments by Saturday at the end of the day.  I will not reveal comments until Sunday or Monday in order for each student to do these questions without benefit of reading others answers.

1. What are the 2 major objectives of this chapter?

2. Explain why the health care sector of the US economy continues to grow.

3.What are the primary distinctions between primary care and speciality care?  And why is there an imbalance between the 2?

4. Why is there a geographic maldistribution of the physician labor force in the US and what measures have been or can be employed to overcome problems related to this maldistribution and imbalance?

5.  Describe the major types of health service professionals (physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives), including their roles, training, practice requirements and practice settings.
