    Extending Life for People with a Terminal Illness: A Moral Right and an Expensive Death? Exploring Societal Perspectives.Neil McHugh, Rachel M. Baker, Helen Mason, Laura Williamson, Job van Exel, Rohan Deogaonkar, Marissa Collins & Cam Donaldson - 2015 - BMC Medical Ethics 16 (1):14.
    Many publicly-funded health systems apply cost-benefit frameworks in response to the moral dilemma of how best to allocate scarce healthcare resources. However, implementation of recommendations based on costs and benefit calculations and subsequent challenges have led to ‘special cases’ with certain types of health benefits considered more valuable than others. Recent debate and research has focused on the relative value of life extensions for people with terminal illnesses. This research investigates societal perspectives in relation to this issue, in the UK.

    Assessing Community Values in Health Care: Is the ‘Willingness to Pay’ Method Feasible?Cam Donaldson, Shelley Farrar, Tracy Mapp, Andrew Walker & Susan Macphee - 1997 - Health Care Analysis 5 (1):7-29.
    In this paper an economics approach to assessing community values in health care priority setting is examined. The approach is based on the concept of ‘willingness to pay’. Eighty two parents were interviewed with regard to three aspects of provision of child health services. For each aspect a choice of two courses of action was presented. Parents were asked which course of action they preferred and what was the maximum amount of money they would be prepared to pay for this (...)

    Resource Allocation in Health Care: Health Economics and Beyond.Craig Mitton & Cam Donaldson - 2003 - Health Care Analysis 11 (3):245-257.
    As resources in health care are scarce, managers and clinicians must make difficult choices about what to fund and what not to fund. At the level of a regional health authority, limited approaches to aid decision makers in shifting resources across major service portfolios exist. A participatory action research project was conducted in the Calgary Health Region. Through five phases of action, including observation of senior management meetings, as well as two sets of one-on-one interviews and two focus groups, an (...)

    Incremental Willingness to Pay: A Theoretical and Empirical Exposition.Karine Lamiraud, Robert Oxoby & Cam Donaldson - 2016 - Theory and Decision 80 (1):101-123.
    Applications of willingness to pay have shown the difficultly to discriminate between various options. This reflects the problem of embedding in both its specific sense, of options being nested within one another, and its more general sense, whereby respondents cannot discriminate between close substitutes or between more-disparate rivals for the same budget. Furthermore, high proportions of reversals between WTP-value and simple preference based rankings of options are often highlighted. Although an incremental WTP approach was devised to encourage more differentiated answers (...)
