I somehow missed this when it came out, but it’s worth a listen!
Sound Medicine is a radio show produced by the Indiana University School of Medicine and WFYI Public Radio. In the last few years, I’ve become their go-to guy on health policy. So, for those of you who would find your day brightened by the sound of my voice, enjoy the following:
In the Sound Medicine studios this week, two bioethicists and a health care policy expert meet to discuss health care rationing. Two familiar voices, IU health care policy expert Aaron Carroll, MD, and the director of the IU Center for Bioethics, Eric Meslin, PhD, sit down with influential bioethicist Arthur Caplan, PhD, the Sydney D. Caplan Professor of Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
Carroll, Caplan and Meslin identify disparities that exist in the United States when it comes to medical care and drugs. Given this basic problem, the three discuss approaches to national health care that render access to basic health care services more equitable.
