Since the 90's, issues of scarcity, priority setting, and rationing lie at the centre of most current debates on health care. These are pressing issues: one way or another, limits have to be set.

This complexity can be represented as an inconsistent triad, a set of three propositions of which any two are compatible but which together form a contradiction.

Produktbeschreibung
Since the 90's, issues of scarcity, priority setting, and rationing lie at the centre of most current debates on health care. These are pressing issues: one way or another, limits have to be set. As such, the question of what is involved in just health care becomes much more complex. This complexity can be represented as an inconsistent triad, a set of three propositions of which any two are compatible but which together form a contradiction. In the case of health care, the three rival values are: social efficiency, justice, and decent-quality care. It seems to be that we can have any two but not all three. Essentially, the central question is the following: how best to square the proverbial welfare circle. How can resources be matched to needs, or needs to resources in socially acceptable and economically feasible ways? This book attempts to answer the question how health care can be incorporated into a comprehensive theory of justice, while realising an acceptable balance between efficiency, justice and care.

Rezensionen
'...I find it (the book) to be uncommonly good. The author very carefully analyzes key philosophical positions as they have been applied in this area; the research is very thorough, the writing is clear and engaging. This book could well be used in just about any university course dealing with public health care.' Professor David Novak, University of Toronto, Canada

' One of the most interesting books I have read in a long time ...a very extensive overview of some prominent modern theories of justice and their application to resource distribution in health care. Based on this it raises a number of new and original questions, some of which also receive original and convincing answers.' Professor Søren Holm, Cardiff Law School, UK
