The Limits of Primary Care

Course Level 1: Introductory

Estimated Study Time: 4 hours

In this course we explore questions of access to community services. To make what might be quite a dry task more challenging we use a fictionalized case study of two people for whom access to community services is particularly problematic. Jim and Marianne are both long-term heroin addicts. Additional problems associated with their addiction are homelessness and physical illness. Their situation raises both practical questions, about how services can be accessed, and moral questions, about entitlement to resources when their problems can be regarded as at least in part self-inflicted.
