Nánar um Göran Hermerén og erindi hans á heilbrigðisþinginu:
"The stage will be set by a brief introduction about my task, its background and why the debate on priority setting in health care is important. I will then provide a structure for the discussion and put this debate in a somewhat larger context where the key concepts are: present situation, goals, difficulties on the road, and strategies to deal with the difficulties. Against that background an ethics platform for priority setting will be introduced and the three principles constituting the platform will be explained, with focus on some of the key concepts in the platform: need and effect. Finally I return to the question on the mission of health care, why the debate on priority setting is important and conclude with some comments on who should be involved in the debate.
