Ethics Services

What is Ethics?

Ethics is about doing the right thing. Sometimes, it’s hard to know what that is. Careful thought and discussion can help. Ethics is a systematic way for making difficult decisions.

Ethics asks us to consider situations from a moral point of view.

It asks us in a global way to consider what is Good? What is Right?  What kind of world do I want to inhabit?  What kind of person do I want to be?

Ethical decision making is a step-by-step look at what we and others believe, the facts of a situation and the things we think are important. Ethics causes us to think about what makes something wrong or right.  This can help us in making difficult decisions.

Not all decisions or conflicts are ethical, but in health care, many are. Solving those problems takes careful thought and discussion. You do not have to do it alone.  There are tools, resources and strategies that can help.

Ethics Services can help connect you to the ethics resources in your area – look through the resources available on this site, or contact us for more information.
