Summary

Advances in medical technology and the rapidly increasing population of older Americans are causing people to question the ethical limits of life-extending interventions. How do we weigh issues involving equity, efficiency, autonomy, natural life span, and responsibility for the financial burdens of health care for the elderly? In this collection of essays, leaders in the fields of ethics, medicine, nusing, economics and public policy explore the pressing issues of providing health care for the elderly.
