Item Description...
Never before have healthcare institutions faced a more chaotic and threatening environment. Rising costs, aging populations, and a lack of medical insurance have forced healthcare in the Western world to undergo a tumultuous change. The Christian healthcare ministry has added problems. With increasingly complex medical-ethical challenges and the continuing struggle to maintain financial viability while insisting on a preferential option for the poor, there is an urgent need for Christian healthcare to refound itself. It must continually re-invent radically new ways to bring Christ's healing gifts to people in need. In Healthcare Ministry, Gerald Arbuckle examines this refounding and offers examples of how it can be done in creative ways. Drawing mainly from anthropology's insights into chaos as a catalyst for creativity and referring to case studies throughout, Arbuckle summarizes the changes in healthcare in recent years and the particular problems these have generated. He uses research material from the U.S., Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand to identify common and particular problems confronting healthcare today and shows how the healing mission of Jesus Christ can continue through refounding. He offers an in-depth discussion of issues such as the conflict between for-profit and Christian healthcare nonprofit facilities and also provides summaries of the most recent research into health and healing in biblical studies. Using all of this information he offers practical advice to help readers respond to the challenges we all face-as either healthcare providers or recipients.
