A Public Policy and Management Subject in the Policy Sectors Domain


This public managemnet subject deals with key issues in health care policy and markets, as well as the unique issues involved in the management and organization of health services. Many courses in this subject area will examine the application of economic principles to policymaking in the area of healthcare. A major theme is the role of government in the financing and delivery of health services, and the ways in which government actions impact the behaviour of non-government actors. Some courses compare the development and structure of health care policy among developed countries. Topics may include: markets for medical care and health insurance, hospital delivery and competition, the pharmaceutical sector, population health, and the economic evaluation of health care programs.
