Bezruchka examines reasons why the US currently ranks 27th in the health of its citizens, down from among the top 5 just 50 years ago. He contends the decline is largely due to increasing stratification between rich and poor and he questions what we can learn from other countries whose citizens live longer and healthier lives

Health & wealth by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Health and longevity are based upon factors we can all acknowledge: genetics, lifestyle and luck among them. They are also largely taken for granted. But as Stephen Bezruchka explains, social class has a far more profound effect in the U.S. than we realize, in ways we wouldn't guess, even for the many of us who consider ourselves middle class
Is America driving you crazy? by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"The number of Americans suffering from mental illness has nearly doubled since 1987. That's when Prozac, the first of the "wonder drugs" was introduced. Mental disorders are reported in more than 25% of returning soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan. And more than 1 in 4 college students are now on anti-depressants. With all the new drugs available for treatment, depression and anxiety disorders continue to rise. Is our drug-based system of care fueling this epidemic? With an unstable future and fewer family and community ties to help deal with problems, anxiety is also heightened by other factors related to modern society, such as war, global warming, advanced technology and globalization. What can we do to create a healthier society and treat those afflicted with mental illness in a more effective way?"--Alternative Radio website

Living with breast cancer experiences and perceptions of women in Georgia by Allison Lael Ekberg Dvaladze( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Aim: The purpose of this study is to improve understanding of the knowledge, beliefs and attitudes of women in Georgia living with breast cancer so as to identify barriers and facilitators to breast health care. Background: Breast cancer is a leading cause of death among women in Georgia and the leading cause of death among women of reproductive age (Serbanescu, 2009). The 2008 age-adjusted incidence and mortality rates for breast cancer among all women are 38.5 per 100,000 women and 19.5 per 100,000 women respectively (GLOBOCAN, 2008). Despite efforts to increase awareness of breast cancer and improve access to screening, there is a lack of information, data, and understanding of the challenges women face, how women are seeking care, interacting with the public health system and making decisions about breast health care. Method: This qualitative study uses thematic analysis to examine narratives from 19 in-depth semi-structured interviews with women diagnosed with breast cancer and one focus group discussion with 12 women. All data were collected in July 2011. Findings: Analysis of the data revealed three major factors influencing women's experiences, perceptions and breast health care seeking behavior in Georgia: beliefs, awareness and resources. These factors are used as categories to illustrate both barriers to detection and treatment as well as facilitators for survival. Barriers to detection and treatment were expressed in terms of fear, denial and disbelief while facilitators for survival were expressed in terms of faith, dignity and agency. Conclusion: As Georgia expands programs providing free breast cancer screening across the country, additional efforts should be made to educate women about risk factors for breast cancer and the benefits of screening. A majority of breast cancer survivors who participated in this study show a strong interest in educating women about the illness and would benefit from advocacy training to advance survivorship awareness and address barriers to care
Damaged care by Stephen Bezruchka( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The most enduring and quoted tradition in medicine is the Hippocratic Oath. It states, "As to diseases, make a habit of two things, to help, or at least, to do no harm." Yet, the U.S., which spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world and is known for its medical schools and state of the art treatment, has a higher rate of infant mortality, heart disease, cancer and depression than most other rich nations. In fact, it is often the treatment that is making patients ill. A recent report indicates that tens of thousands of people die in American hospitals every year from medical errors. Although healthcare providers, insurance and drug companies are partly to blame, the structure of the healthcare system plays a bigger role. Healthier societies recognize that the primary causes of disease are social and economic, therefore, the remedies must be social and economic as well
