Health care is defined as âan approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritualâ El-Sourani N et al., Visceral Surgery: Treatment Options in Palliative Care.
Journal of General practice is a pioneering journal among all the health care journals. Our journal serves as a platform for the physicians over the world to exchange their views and concepts of heath care and medicine. With direct or explicit rationing health care priorities are first determined by following a set of criteria that considers political, social and cost-effective factors. Once the priorities are established available resources are rationed to meet the unique requirements of each priority. Rationing explicitly is unique from imposing expenditure controls because it rations resources by directly targeting specific priorities. Vinay et al., A Review on Economical Health and its Outputs.
