Setting Limits Fairly

Show Summary Details

Preview

The central idea for this book is that we lack consensus on principles for allocating resources and, in the absence of such a consensus, we must rely on a fair decision-making process for setting limits on health care. The book provides a cogent analysis of the current situation and reviews the usual candidate solutions. It also describes the book's own approach, which represents a clear advance in thinking. The goal of this book is to answer a central question about justice and health care: how can a society or health plan meet population health care needs fairly under resource limitations?

Keywords: allocating resources; decision-making process; resource limitations; health plan; limit setting
