Ethical Dimensions of Health Policy

Edited by Marion Danis, M.D., Carolyn Clancy, M.D., and Larry R. Churchill

This book takes bioethics and health policy to a new level of integration. Moving beyond principles and normative frameworks, bioethicsists writing in the volume consider the actual policy problems faced by health care systems, while policy-makers reflect on the moral values inherent in both the process and content of health policy. Together, they explore the goals and processes involved in developing health policy and examine the roles of various stakeholders as well as the thorny ethical issues that arise.
