April 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Austin 102

Mediterranean lunch will be served. Space is limited. RSVP by emailing shariasource@law.harvard.edu

Early Islamic political theory as it enjoyed currency among the scholarly classes alternated between two possibilities: legal functionalism and political anthropology.

Ordeals in Health Care: Ethics and Efficient Delivery REGISTER NOW! Ordeals in Health Care image

May 10 @ 2:00 pm - 6:15 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:30am, repeating until May 11, 2018

WCC 2036 Milstein East

Economic ordeals are interventions that deliberately make access to products or services more difficult in an effort to improve resource allocation. In this vein, making patients wait in long lines to schedule an appointment with a specialist might discourage patients with needs that could be met by less qualified personnel from taking up the specialist’s time, thus freeing up time for those with complex needs. Similarly, putting brand-name medications at the bottom of a long list of options on clinicians’…
