Ethics Consultation Services

As modern technology has advanced the ability to diagnose and treat complex diseases, it has also brought to the forefront major ethical questions regarding the continuation or withholding and withdrawal of treatment. Because of these concerns, the Ethics Consultation Service is available to address ethical dilemmas facing the healthcare team, the patient and the family. Acknowledging there often is not one right answer, the Ethics Consultation Service provides a mechanism for conflict resolution in relation to ethical healthcare options.

To explore the possibility of initiating an ethics consultation, contact a member of your healthcare team at ext. 3199 during normal business hours. You will receive a reply to your request within a reasonable timeframe. If it is after business hours, please leave your name and where you can be reached on the voice mail and someone will get back to you.
