Die Gesundheitswirtschaft ist in den letzten 20 Jahren eine wichtige Säule der Regionalwirtschaft geworden. Die Branche ist nicht nur ein bedeutender Wertschöpfungs- und Beschäftigungsträger, sondern ein wichtiger Motor für Innovationen sowohl innerhalb der Branche als auch darüber hinaus in andere Branchen. Dementsprechend ist der Leitmarkt Gesundheit mittlerweile ein fester Bestandteil regionaler Innovationsstrategien. Der Band gibt einen Überblick über allgemeine Grundlagen und Methoden zur regionalen Gesundheitswirtschaft, über Gesundheitsherausforderungen und -chancen im internationalen Vergleich sowie über Innovationschancen und -blockaden in ausgewählten Feldern der regionalen Gesundheitswirtschaft. Mit seinem Erscheinen in der Reihe „Gesundheit. Politik – Gesellschaft – Wirtschaft“ (hrsg. von E.-W. Luthe und J. N. Weatherly) steht das Buch für die wachsende Erkenntnis, Gesundheitspolitik als interdisziplinäre Aufgabe zu betrachten.

This book brings together contributions from scholars across Europe to present findings from a foresight analysis exercise on audiences and audience analysis, looking towards an increasingly datafied world and anticipating the ubiquity of the internet of things. The book uses knowledge emerging out of three foresight exercises, produced in co-operation with more than 50 stake-holding organisations and building on systematic reviews of audience research. It works through these exercises to arrive at a renewed agenda for audience studies within communication scholarship in the context of intrusive and connected interfaces and emerging communicative practices.

With a rapidly aging population throughout the world, the issue of larger percentages of older adults has repercussions for both policy and the job market. Whether a university student about to seek a full-time job or a caregiver for an older person, Aging in the Family should enhance the reader’s knowledge and skills. The main topics covered in this volume include marital status of older adults, support systems within families, crises with older adults within families, the resilience of older adults entering the latter stages of life, practical information involving caregiving, aging in place, and various social services for an aging population. The reader will be made aware of intergenerational interactions between older adults and other family members in various cultures. The role of ethnicity and socio-economic status in health issues of older adults will be discussed, as will the application of technology to an aging population. Though problems certainly exist as one ages, the overall thrust of the book is toward the positive aspects of growing old. Numerous theories exist to probe research and understanding of older adults in families. The relation between theory and research will be helpful to many students of aging in the family. Older adults are generally married, yet cohabitation and other options are alive and well too. Ageism, death, and abuse, unfortunately, are issues affecting aging. Yet, most older adults in the US and Western Europe report living independently and being satisfied with their lives. Aging in the Family will be an interesting read for anyone wanting to learn about older adults and family relationships, as it exhibits a blend of both theoretical and practical matters.

Two "megatrends" of modern culture are rapid population aging and the inexorable advances in various technologies encountered by the population at large. This comprehensive volume explores the intersections of technology with aging and serves as both a primer and reference for educators, students, researchers, and practitioners. It includes concepts from the basics of gerotechnology—person-environment fit—to the core activity fields—computer and assistive devices and their practical applications—to models, or prototypes for technical development and its application to everyday life. Thought-provoking concluding chapters address ethical concerns for the future as well as offer new perspectives or context to ideas and innovations explored earlier.
