How should hospital administrators respond to budget cuts? Which responses are both economically sensible and ethical? The principles guiding resource allocation decisions within hospitals were the subject of a forum held in May 1993 at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, organised jointly by the Alfred Hospital Ethics Committee and the Eleanor Shaw Centre for the Study of Medicine, Society and Law at the Baker Institute.
