Discussion

Question 1: In Chapter 11, Quadagno describes social determinants of health. More recently, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation describes this as “Health begins where we live, work, learn and play.” What does this mean for you, your family or future clients/patients? How can this perspective help with prevention and treatment of chronic disease?

Question 2: Family caregivers suffer more health problems than non-caregivers. What changes or interventions can help prevent this? Please consider families, health and social service providers, and public policy.

Question 3: Compared to nearly every other country in the world, in the U.S. many very costly medical interventions are provided during the final days of a person’s life. How do you feel about these intensive treatments when it is likely someone will die? If you think this should happen less often, what could be done? If you think it should continue, how can these costs be covered?
