Today, over 45 million Americans live without any health insurance. The ones who are sick will face the fear that there may be no one to help them. This video examines ethical dilemmas from the patient's perspective that arise with regard to health care. It presents the problem of the uninsured in America and examines the issues of rationing, universal access to health care, and the difficult matter of reining in the costs of health care. This ethics education program is designed for parishes, high schools, and colleges. Each 30-minute DVD is divided into four chapters and covers a particular case-study. The package includes a DVD for showing to groups and a CD-ROM for use by individuals on their personal computers. The program promotes learning through Q & A sessions, group dicussions, and more. Facilitation guides that follow the DVDs can be downloaded online or from the DVD or CD-ROM in Adobe Reader.
