Justice and Health Care: Comparative Perspectives by Andrew Grubb
This ninth volume in the series of King's College Studies demonstrates the essential need for interplay between law, economics, political science and moral philosophy when formulating health policy. It addresses the issue of justice in the provision of health care by examining the problems faced in the American health care system, such as discrimination against ethnic and disabled groups, and the correlation between wealth and health. Subsequently it broadens the debate by turning to consider approaches in other health care systems such as those in the UK and Canada. This thought-provoking collection constitutes a useful and informative reference source that will be of particular interest to medical and health care practitioners across all specialties, philosophers, medical sociologists, health economists and lawyers.
