Black-White Disparities in Health Care
JAMA. 1990 May 2; 263(17): 2344-2346.
This policy report submitted to the American Medical Association's House of Delegates at the 1989 Interim meeting, by the AMA's Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, reviews the findings of recent studies of disparities in health and health care between black and white Americans. Study findings document differences in need and access to care, and in the kinds of treatment recommended and provided in areas such as cardiology and cardiac surgery, kidney transplantation, general internal medicine, and obstetrics. The report concludes that such racial disparities among Americans in treatment decisions are unjustifiable, and recommends approaches to their elimination. (KIE abstract)
