Money and Medicine: Bedside Ethics of the Medical Marketplace


January 30, 2007

Health care providers have received conflicting messages about the role cost should play in providing patient care.

On the one hand, they are taught not to ration at the bedside. On the other hand, they are encouraged and sometimes mandated to control ever-rising health care costs by limiting provision of expensive treatments or services particularly those associated with poor patient outcomes. Yet, cost is rarely a topic of patient care conferences or ethics case consultations. Join us for an afternoon in which we explore the topic of health care cost, how it influences patient care, and how it should be addressed at the bedside. Attendees will discuss the following case study and join panelists in exploring issues related to cost, distributive justice, and professional ethics.
