Issue: 
Pages: 
280–3
Synopsis: 
Creative thinking and entrepreneurship were the driving forces which opened new opportunities for medical training to be available and accessible to persons previously denied because of “artificial” barriers.

Preparing Medical Graduates to Practise in a Changing Environment Complementary/Alternative Medicine in the Medical Undergraduate Curriculum of The University of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
284–6
Synopsis: 
There is a trend towards the use of complementary/alternative medical care practices by persons in both developed and developing countries.

Medical schools at present are not offering enough information to undergraduates in order for them to carry out this important function.

Ethical Issues in Healthcare Financing

Issue: 
Pages: 
498–501
Synopsis: 
Allocating scarce resources to competing sectors has always been a major challenge for policy-makers, planners and administrators. As the cost of healthcare continues to escalate and the burden of diseases make faster demands on the budget, there has been greater recourse to public debate on the issue. A major underpinning of this debate focusses on the ethical issues inherent in the decision-making process as they affect life, living and death – all in the context of “quality of life”.
