Resumen


El artículo presenta una revisión de literatura sobre la aversión al riesgo en la toma de decisiones médicas. Se cubrieron las bases de datos Econlit, Jstor, Science Direct y Springer Link desde 1985. Los resultados se dividen en tres temas: la aversión al riesgo desde las teorías de la utilidad esperada y de la utilidad esperada basada en rangos, y las metodologías de medición de la aversión al riesgo en situaciones clínicas desde la economía y desde la psicología. Se encontró que, a pesar de los avances conceptuales y en técnicas de medición en economía, la medición experimental se ha limitado principalmente al punto de vista psicológico.
