Ethical Choices in Long-Term Care: What Does Justice Require?

WHO report

The report synthesizes a consultation held at the University of Chicago in July 2002 to reflect on the moral basis of long-term care and to point the way forward. The goal was not to reach consensus but rather to discuss relevant topics from many perspectives and to suggest an agenda for ethical considerations. The document includes discussions on the societal perspective, the role of the family, the caregiving relationship, long-term care and social justice, and the way forward.
