Implementing Ethical Frameworks for Rationing Scarce Health Resources in Minnesota During Severe Influenza Pandemic [open pdf - 0B]
A companion report to 'For the Good of Us All: Ethically Rationing Health Resources in Minnesota in a Severe Influenza Pandemic': "In 2007, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) contracted with ethicists from the University of Minnesota's Center for Bioethics and the Minnesota Center for Health Care Ethics to develop and lead the Minnesota Pandemic Ethics Project. This project's primary goal is to develop guidance regarding how scarce health resources should be rationed in Minnesota during severe influenza pandemic. A presentation of the project's recommendations for ethical frameworks for rationing can be found in the report entitled 'For the Good of Us All: Ethically Rationing Health Resources in Minnesota in a Severe Influenza Pandemic'. The project committed not only to the development of ethical frameworks for rationing, but also to the identification and analysis of issues relating to the implementation of those ethical frameworks. This report, 'Implementing Ethical Frameworks for Rationing Scarce Health Resources in Minnesota During Severe Influenza Pandemic', presents analysis of those implementation issues."
