     Changing Values in Medical and Health Care Decision Making charts the progress of changing values in medical and health care decision making, particularly as a result of economic and financial pressures. It evaluates concepts such as risk and need, whose values are relevant to which decisions, the changing emphasis of medicine and the relevance of value judgments in clinical decisions. This is looked at from a number of different perspectives, disciplines and nationalities, to give a cross-disciplinary, international approach; and in addition to medical aspects, philosophical, legal and economic issues are discussed, providing a focus and stimulus for debate.
     This book will be of immense interest and great value to doctors, health professionals, medical sociologists, health care managers, epidemiologists, and medical students, and will provide a fascinating insight into the changing concepts
of medical decision making.
