Clinical Ethics

Alberta-wide

Health care is complex and sometimes requires us to make difficult decisions where there are no clear answers.

When underlying beliefs and values are in conflict we can help answer questions like:

  • “What is a good thing to do?”
  • “How should this decision be made?”
  • “Is this a reasonable compromise?”

Alberta Health Services physicians, staff, patients, clients and residents can access the Clinical Ethics Service to receive support and assistance in ethically challenging situations.
