Title

Public Engagement Project on Medical Service Prioritization During an Influenza Pandemic

Description

A severe influenza pandemic will have profound impact on the health care delivery system. Shortages of life-sustaining medical resources, including hospital beds, trained health care providers, intensive care unit resources, medical supplies, equipment, and medications, are expected. Rationing of scarce resources and alterations in the standards of health care delivery are widely acknowledged to be necessary components of the response to large scale health emergencies; yet, there has been little public dialogue on these issues and detailed guidelines are not yet available.
