dc.description.abstractEach of us has some basic sense of what the words "fair" or "just" or "fairness" or "justice" mean. Each of us probably also has an idea of what is "fair" in health care. The attempt by the state of Oregon in the mid-1980s to quantify this notion made a previously private exercise a public one. This transition has been chronicled in the bioethics literature that focuses on resource allocation. These works examine both theories of justice and concepts of "health"; the fair distribution of health resources has been of continuing interest since the beginning of bioethics in the 1960s. Early writing on justice includes authors Tom L. Beauchamp, Robert H. Blank, James F. Childress, H. Tristram Engelhardt, Paul T. Menzel, Paul Ramsey, and Robert M. Veatch (VII).en
