How do I arrange a consultation?

Informed Consent to Treatment

Any member of the medical team, hospital staff, patients, and patient families can make a confidential request for ethics consultation services. After receiving a request, the ethicist will assess whether a clinical ethics consult is needed, or whether a referral to a more appropriate resource within the hospital or within the community is required. Ethics consultations remain confidential unless there is any threat of harm or abuse to a patient, staff or family member.
