This project aims to bring together, for the first time, two distinct groups of people: a carefully selected group of respected and influential North American scholars in the field of resource allocation ethics, and those Albertans and Canadians most directly entrusted with the decision-making authority and responsibility for improving the health of their communities. The main purpose of this conference is to equip decision-makers with tools and skills that will allow them to approach hard decisions in a more systematic manner, explicitly grounded in carefully considered values, and to have greater confidence that the decisions they are involved in making are grounded on an ethically defensible moral foundation.
