Protecting Patients from Health Care Monopolies

Course Description

This course will analyze the factors driving hospital mergers and acquisitions and examine the impact of corporate consolidation on patients and nurses. Through different case studies, we will investigate the consequences of health care monopolies, including the closure of hospitals that serve poor, urban, and rural patients; the outsourcing of care; and systematic understaffing. This course will also show how nurses can fight back against health care monopolies by building collective power to create safer, healthier workplaces. We will conclude by exploring how nurses can continue to advocate for patients by growing and expanding their power and solidarity.
