Summary note:
Wasting Away examines the logic and results of cost-cutting and privatization. Care providers and patients offer evidence that many of the recent changes have reinforced these problems. The current medical model emphasizes aggressive, curative treatments, while fewer and fewer Canadians enjoy access to good care. Wasting Away is essential reading for Canadians concerned with contemporary - and future - health care.
