Ethics Case Consultation
The Center of Bioethics and Medical Humanities recently began implementing its Clinical Ethics Consultation (CEC) Service. This cornerstone clinical service provides round-the-clock assistance to physicians, frontline providers, patients and families facing challenging ethical health-care dilemmas.
This translation of ethics studies to the clinical arena can help in the determination of strategies that respect each patient's wishes and beliefs. Our goal is not to “lay down the law” at all - but to help assess the problem and bring evidence-based practical solutions to bear that can help.
