    Health Care in Industrial Nations. Industrial nations throughout the world, with the notable exception of the United States, provide their citizens with some form of national health care and national health insurance (Russell, ). Although their health-care systems differ in several respects, their governments pay all or most of the costs for health care, drugs, and other health needs.   “Understanding Healthcare: A Historical Perspective” is a new e-book in which I attempt to address the challenges facing physicians today in part by reviewing the history of healthcare. Physicians strive to serve patients, relieve suffering within the limitations of today’s knowledge, enhance public health, prevent epidemics, and to cure.

    SUMMARY A historical review suggests a number of recurring themes in mental health policy, especially in relation to older persons: 1. Lack of parity between traditional health care and mental health care in services, training, and research, due in part to continuing financial and social disincentives. 2. We want to better understand where the health care system is falling short in serving the needs of all people, but especially the unique, and often more complex, needs of older Americans.

      Advances in health care are providing for greater longevity among older Americans. The result is an increasing proportion of elderly on the caseloads of speech-language pathologists, a pattern likely to continue.   Divided into five sections, Older People and Mental Health Nursing first explores the background, historical perspectives and influences on mental health care in later life. It then looks at the ethical and legal issues involved, therapeutic relationships, and the values underpinning support and care.
