The revolutionary progress in biomedical science and technology during the past 40 years has brought new solutions to scores of clinical problems. It has also introduced new problems: ethical questions, institutional strains, societal expectation, and new costs. The six papers and the accompanying discussions examine all of these consequences from governmental, institutional, and public vantage points. Because only a portion of the papers are documented with adequate references, this text serves more as an overview of main themes than as a source for further study.
