Training currently practicing members of the ethics consultation service: One institution's experience

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

4 Scopus citations


Most hospitals and nursing homes have individuals who engage in ethics consultation, and most do so with very little, if any, training. The goal of this article is not to advance the scholarly literature on training clinical ethics consultants, but instead to provide a road map for individuals doing ethics consultation who would like more training. In this way, I hope to advance the field in some small way, by educating, empowering, and encouraging small- to medium-sized hospitals to train the members of their ethics committee who engage in ethics consultation.
