Am I my parents' keeper? : an essay on justice between the young and the old by Norman Daniels( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 1,179 libraries worldwide
This is an essay about the just distribution of resources between the young and the old. It seeks a principled way, rooted in a theory of justice, to resolve disputes about how income support, health care, and other social resources should be allocated to different age groups in our society. This book is primarily concerned with the just design of social institutions, but it has a bearing on the dilemmas faced by individuals trying to understand what they ought to do for their elderly parents. Although it addresses important issues of public policy and, therefore, is of interest to all those concerned with the well-being of the elderly, current and future, it is a philosophical essay rather than a detailed analysis of policy options
Just health : meeting health needs fairly by Norman Daniels( Book )
21 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 962 libraries worldwide
"In this new book by the author of Just Health Care, Norman Daniels develops a comprehensive theory of justice for health that answers three key questions: What is the special moral importance of health? When are health inequalities unjust? How can we meet health needs fairly when we cannot meet them at all? The theory has implications for national and global health policy: Can we meet health needs fairly in aging societies? Or protect health in the workplace while respecting individual liberty? Or meet professional obligations and obligations of justice without conflict? When is health reform or the selection of patients for treatment for HIV or coverage for catastrophic health benefits fair? When is an effort to reduce health disparities or to set priorities in realizing a human right to health fair? What do richer, healthier societies owe poorer, sicker societies? Just Health: Meeting Health Needs Fairly explores the many ways that social justice is good for the health of populations in developed and developing countries."--Jacket
Just health care by Norman Daniels( Book )
27 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 912 libraries worldwide
How should medical services be distributed within society? Who should pay for them? Is it right that large amounts should be spent on sophisticated new technology and expensive operations, or would the resources be better employed in, for instance, less costly preventive measures? These and others are the questions addressed in this book. The author 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
Setting limits fairly : can we learn to share medical resources? by Norman Daniels( Book )
17 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 733 libraries worldwide
"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 decisionmaking process that holds decision-makers accountable for setting reasonable limits on health care. Daniels and Sabin provide a cogent analysis of the current situation, lucidly review the usual candidate solutions, and describe their own approach. Their intended audience for the book is global since the problem of limited resources cuts across types of health care systems whether or not they have universal coverage."
Thomas Reid's Inquiry: the geometry of visibles and the case for realism by Norman Daniels( Book )
6 editions published between 1974 and 1989 in English and held by 637 libraries worldwide
Seeking fair treatment : from the AIDS epidemic to national health care reform by Norman Daniels( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 545 libraries worldwide
Seeking Fair Treatment makes a major contribution to the health care debate and forces us to examine the current state and pace of health care reform in this country. Whether or not the present health care system emerges fundamentally changed (in whole or in part), the lessons of the AIDS epidemic are lessons we must all take to heart if we are to succeed in treating each other fairly through health care reform. Arguing passionately that access to health care is not merely a goal for a just society, but a requirement, Norman Daniels provides a framework for coming to terms with one of the great moral crises of our time
Benchmarks of fairness for health care reform by Norman Daniels( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 508 libraries worldwide
Justice and justification : reflective equilibrium in theory and practice by Norman Daniels( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 445 libraries worldwide
We all have beliefs, even strong convictions, about what is just and fair in our social arrangements. How should these beliefs and the theories of justice that incorporate them guide our thinking about practical matters of justice? This wide-ranging collection of essays by one of the foremost medical ethicists in the United States explores the claim that justification in ethics, whether concerning matters of theory or practice, involves achieving coherence or "reflective equilibrium" (as Rawls has called it) between our moral and nonmoral beliefs. Among the practical issues the volume addresses are the design of health-care institutions, the distribution of goods between the old and the young, and fairness in hiring and firing practices. In combining ethical theory and practical ethics this volume will prove especially valuable to philosophers concerned with ethics and applied ethics, political theorists, bioethicists, and others involved in the study of public policy

Policy challenges in modern health care by Lynn B Rogut( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Health care delivery in the United States is an enormously complex enterprise, and its 1.6 trillion annual expenditures involve a host of competing interests. While arguably the nation offers among the most technologically advanced medical care in the world, the American system consistently under performs relative to its resources. Gaps in financing and service delivery pose major barriers to improving health, reducing disparities, achieving universal insurance coverage, enhancing quality, controlling costs, and meeting the needs of patients and families. Bringing together twenty-five

From chance to choice : genetics and justice by Allen E Buchanan( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"This book probes the implications of advances in genetics. The authors ask how they should affect our understanding of distributive justice, equality in opportunity, the rights and obligations as parents, the meaning of disability, and the role of the concept of human nature in ethical theory and practice." "The book offers a historical context to contemporary debate over the use of these technologies by providing an ethical autopsy of mankind's first attempts to use the scientific knowledge of heredity to improve human lives: the eugenics movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Appendices explain the nature of genetic causation and gene-environment interaction, and expose widespread misconceptions of genetic determinism, as well as outline the nature of the ethical analysis used in the book." "The questions raised in this book will be of interest to any reflective reader concerned about science and society and the rapid development of biotechnology, as well as to professionals in such areas as philosophy, bioethics, medical ethics, health management, law, and political science."--Jacket
