Rationing End-of-Life Care Debate

Debating the Ethics of Rationing End-of-Life Care
The NewsHour (April 26, 2010)

The NewsHour on PBS ran a short piece on a recent end-of-life care debate at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center of Public Affairs. A video from the debate, which was much longer and must be available somewhere on the interweb, is embedded below.

Susan Dentzer, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs and NewsHour commentator moderated.

Here are the panel members:

Ira Byock, a doctor and director of palliative medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH
Arthur Caplan, director of the Center for Bioethics and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania
Ken Connor, chair of the Center for a Just Society and a lawyer in private practice
Marie Hilliard, director of bioethics and public policy at the National Catholic Bioethics Center and a registered nurse

    Kim: Many thanks for these links. I knew that the full debate had to be on the web but I was in a hurry and didn’t look. Thanks again.
