“The Veteran Voice in Treatment Allocations for Hepatitis C: A Model for Policy Decision Making”

Abstract: Our objective was to explore, through Democratic Deliberation methods, whether Veterans at the Ann Arbor VA prefer a “First Come, First Serve” or “Sickest First” model for allocating treatment for Hepatitis-C when there are limited resources. In addition to expressing their policy preferences, Veterans offered nuanced insights into the treatment barriers Veterans are facing and how the VA may be able to overcome some of these barriers.
