Vulnerability in Health Care

What does it mean to be vulnerable? Who decides who is or is not vulnerable? Are there benefits or harms associated with labeling certain groups as vulnerable or marginalized or underserved? In this invited commentary in CMAJ, the Canadian Medical Association Journal, we explore these questions in our exploration of the concept of vulnerability in health care.
