Consider the ethical aspects of health care and health policy for an aging population. Review the Hayutin, Dietz, and Mitchell report presented in the Learning Resources. The authors pose the question, "What are the economic consequences, now and for future generations of taxpayers if we fail to adapt our policies to the changing reality of an older population?" (p. 21). Consider how you would respond to this question. In addition, reflect on the ethical decisions that arise when dispersing limited funds. Contemplate the impact of failing to adjust policy in accordance with the changing reality of an older population. Reflect on the ethical dilemmas that arise when determining expenditures on end-of-life health care. Post an explanation of the ethical standards you believe should be used in determining how resources should be allocated for an aging population and end-of-life care. Then, provide an analysis of the ethical challenges related to the preparation for the provision of such health care.
