Clinical Ethics

Clinical ethics is concerned with ethics in clinical practice and with ethical issues that arise in the treatment of patients. This involves a balanced combination of practical support (counseling), continuing and advanced education and training, and research. The work of clinical ethics is interdisciplinary; the services are aimed at nurses, doctors and other health professionals. The concerns of patients and their families are also taken into account.
