In 2001, Americans spent $1.4 trillion on health care services. By 2010, health care costs are forecasted to approach 20% of the United States' Gross National Product. Technology Applications in Prevention highlights much-needed technology-based prevention/intervention methods that can help contain health costs. From alcohol abuse prevention for youth to Web-based continuing education for service providers, this book provides you with a useful cross-section of the current state of the art in the application of technology to prevention and intervention.
