Just health : meeting health needs fairly by Norman Daniels( Book )
23 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 755 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 )
30 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 748 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

Seeking fair treatment : from the AIDS epidemic to national health care reform by Norman Daniels( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 514 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
Justice and justification : reflective equilibrium in theory and practice by Norman Daniels( Book )
19 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 496 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

This volume on euthanasia and assisted suicide brings together previously unpublished works that were developed before and after a three-day conference sponsored by selected faculty from the Kennedy institute of Ethics at Georgetown University and the Schools of Medicine and Public Health at The Johns Hopkins University.

In search of equity : health needs and the health care system by Ronald Bayer( Book )
7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
I Several years ago, when the Carter administration announced that it would support congressional action to end the public fund ing of abortions, the President was asked at a press conference whether he thought that such a policy was unfair; he responded, "Life is unfair." His remarks provoked a storm of controversy. For other than those who, for principled reasons, opposed abor tion on any grounds, it seemed that the President's comments were cruel, violating what was thought to be an American com mitment to providing equal access to health services to all citi zens, regardless of their capacity to pay. Those sentiments had, in fact, been reflected in public opinion polls that had, for at least three decades, indicated that Americans supported the propo sition that the government should guarantee health care to all. Ultimately, those beliefs had been translated into the oft-ex 1 pressed political demand for a one-class system of health care. This commitment to equality is rather remarkable. American society evidences a striking willingness to tolerate vast inequal ities with regard to income and wealth. While it guarantees ed ucation to all children, there is not even a pretense that the children of the wealthy and the children of the poor ought to get precisely the same kind of schooling. While some commitment 'Hazel Erskine. "The Polls: Health Insurance," Public Opinion Quarterly, XXXIX (Spring, 1975), 128-143

Setting limits fairly : can we learn to share medical resources? by Norman Daniels( Book )
12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
The central idea for this volume is that we lack consensus on principles for allocating resources and in the absence of such a consensus we must rely on a fair decision-making process for setting limits on health care
Setting limits fairly : learning to share resources for health by Norman Daniels( Book )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 324 libraries worldwide
"In its first edition, Setting Limits Fairly stimulated considerable work on setting priorities in health care, both here and abroad. The second edition adds new material to the book, including a new chapter on the international response to accountability for reasonableness and two new chapters on applications of the approach in developing countries and in human rights approaches to health."--Jacket
Identified versus statistical lives : an interdisciplinary perspective by I. Glenn Cohen( Book )
7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Human beings show a greater inclination to assist (and avoid harming) persons and groups identified as those at high risk of great harm than to assist (and avoid harming) persons and groups who will suffer (or already suffer) similar harm but are not identified (as yet). The problem touches almost every aspect of human life and politics: health, the environment, the law. This volume is the first book to tackle the effect from all necessary perspectives

From chance to choice : genetics and justice by Allen E Buchanan( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library 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
