Does the U.S. Need to Ration Costly End-of-Life Care?
Date:3/15/2010

rs will argue what, if anything, the government should do to contain costs.  Should the government spend less on costly end-of-life procedures and instead use these resources to care for more patients?  Would it be better to ration by choice and let patients and their doctors decide on end-of-life care, such as living wills and pain management?  What would be the social implications of a rationing policy?  Would the government be deciding who is worth saving and who is not?

This debate will be followed later this spring by debates on the cost of college moderated by Ray Suarez, senior correspondent for "PBS NewsHour" and on the impact of the Internet on democracy moderated by Robin MacNeil of MacNeil/Lehrer Productions.  

The Miller Center of Public Affairs is a leading nonpartisan public policy institution aimed at bringing together engaged citizens, scholars, members of the media and government officials to focus on issues of national importance to the governance of the United States, with a special interest in the American presidency.
