Allocating Scarce Medical Resources: Roman Catholic Perspectives

By H. Tristram Engelhardt Jr.; Mark J. Cherry | Go to book overview

Preface

The essays that make up this book grew out of papers that were written and rewritten during and after a series of meetings involving a small working group of theologians, philosophers, and physicians. The first meeting was held in Schaan, the Principality of Liechtenstein, August 30—September 1, 1997. The second and third meetings were held in Houston, February 7–10 and October 24—27, 1998. The fourth and final meeting was convened in the precincts of Dublin, May 13—16, 1999. Out of the conversations sustained at these meetings, the major papers were rewritten, recast, and refocused four times. The book, in short, grew out of a dialogue sustained during a period of some three years. So, too, the Consensus Statement grew out of a discussion of this group of scholars. Long after the last meeting in 1999, it was the subject of interchanges by e-mail, fax, and post. The result is this volume and its reflections on Roman Catholic moral theological insights into the proper allocation of medical resources, using critical care as a heuristic example.

A number of individuals must be thanked who did not in the end contribute essays, but who were discussion partners as well as members of an Editorial Advisory Board that aided in reviewing and focusing the essays. These people include Francesc Abel, S.J.; Emanuel Agius; Angeles tan Alora; Antonio Autiero; Gerhold K. Becker; Baruch A. Brody; Nicholas Capaldi; Ned Cassem, S.J.; Dimitri Cozby; George Eber; Ruiping Fan; Curtis Freeman; Harvey Gordon; Diego Gracia; Stanley Hauerwas; Henk ten Have; Ana Smith Iltis; B. Andrew Lustig; Thérèse Lysaught; Jose Mainetti; Gerald McKenny; Lisa Rasmussen; Al Rosenfeld; Giovanni Russo; Mark Siegler; Allyne Smith; David Solomon; Charles Sprung; William Stempsey, S.J.; Carole Bailey Stoneking; Laurence P. Ulrich; and Laurie Zoloth.
