Just Health Care by Norman Daniels

Book Description

How should medical services be distributed within society? Who should pay for them? Is it right that large amounts should be spent on sophisticated technology and expensive operations, or would the resources be better employed in, for instance, less costly preventive measures? These and others are the questions addreses in this book. Norman Daniels examines some of the dilemmas thrown up by conflicting demands for medical attention, and goes on to advance a theory of justice in the distribution of health care. The central argument is that health care, both preventive and acute, has a crucial effect on equality of opportunity, and that a principle guaranteeing equality of opportunity must underly the distribution of health-care services. Access to care, preventive measures, treatment of the elderly, and the obligations of doctors and medical administrations are fully discussed, and the theory is shown to underwrite various practical policies in the area.

Identified versus Statistical Lives by Norman Daniels Identified versus Statistical Lives, Hardback (April 2015)

Human beings show a greater inclination to assist persons identified as being at high risk of great harm than to assist persons who will suffer similar harm but are not identified as yet. Does this effect constitute a virtue, or a vice? What explains the effect? What are the implications for policy?

Setting Limits Fairly by Norman Daniels Setting Limits Fairly, Paperback (March 2008)

The central idea behind this book is that we lack consensus on principles for allocating medical resources, and in the absence of such a consensus we must develop and rely on a fair decision-making process for setting limits on health care. The authors provide an analysis of the current situation, reviewing typical solutions, before describing their own approach.
