Rationing in Medicine. Ethical, Legal and Practical Aspects

Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, Germany, 23 - 25 March 2000

Progress in medicine along with increasing costs of health care have brought the topic of rationing in medicine onto the general agenda. Unfortunately, quite often a rational discussion of rationing is drowned out by the political talk of the day. But only an open and well-informed debate, if anything at all, can lead to transparent and just rationing procedures which eventually might be acceptable to the public at large. The conference will bring together scientists from fields like medicine, law, economics and philosophy and aims at facilitating open discussions of the present state and future development of rationing in medicine from an interdisciplinary and international perspective.

The conference language is English.
