Fair Resource Allocation and Rationing at the Bedside

Edited by Marion Danis, Samia A. Hurst, Len Fleck, Reidun Forde, and Anne Slowther

  • The book offers a unique combination of normative analyses of the moral grounds for resource allocation and rationing at the bedside, empirical evidence about the prevalence of rationing by physicians, and concrete suggestions about how clinicians and health care systems can work together to make resource allocation and rationing as fair as possible.
  • This book presents an international comparison of attitudes towards and reported bedside rationing by physicians. It illustrates and justifies why the relevant question regarding bedside rationing is not whether it ought to be practiced, but how it can be practiced in a manner which respects everyone.
