    Everyday Ethical Problems in Dementia Care: A Teleological Model.Ingrid Ågren Bolmsjö, Anna-Karin Edberg & Lars Sandman - 2006 - Nursing Ethics 13 (4):340-359.

    The aim of this study was to describe the reasoning of people aged 60 years and over about prioritization in health care with regard to age and willingness to pay. Healthy people (n = 300) and people receiving continuous care and services (n = 146) who were between 60 and 101 years old were interviewed about their views on prioritization in health care. The transcribed interviews were analysed using manifest and latent qualitative content analysis. The participants' reasoning on prioritization embraced (...)
