  1. Allocating health care resources : the vexing case of rehabilitation.

    Article - En anglais

    The allocation of resources to rehabilitation is beset with many difficulties.

    Among them are the general crisis in the American health care system and the problem of how to make a case for the role of rehabilitation.

    Rehabilitation must be prepared to show how and why it is a good medical and social investment in relation to other needs.

    Rehabilitation has played a secondary role in the American health care system because of overemphasis on curative and life-extending medicine.

    Rehabilitation must work to show that money invested in caring is as well spent as money aiming at the extension of life.

    It must also establish a fresh new vision of health care in general as well as illustrate where rehabilitation stands in a more integrated and coherent health care system.

    Improved quality of life, which rehabilitation can provide, is as important as saving and extending life.
