Priority setting in health systems

(p.119) 5 Priority setting in health systems
The health debate

David J. Hunter

Policy Press

This chapter examines rationing and priority setting in the health care sector. It investigates why rationing is no longer much discussed in contemporary health policy debates, while it was on every policy maker's lips just a decade ago. It explores how the issues of rationing and priority setting are being addressed in health systems that continue to have to manage growing demand with limited resources.

Keywords:   rationing, priority setting, health care, health policy debates, limited resources
