Ethics Service

The Health Care Ethics Service was established in May 1993 to act as a resource to all health care facilities and programs owned and operated by the Grey Nuns of Manitoba.

This Service provides assistance in four areas: ethics education; case consultation; policy development and review; research and review of research.

An Ethics Consultation?

Making complex health care decisions are not easy. Ethical issues can arise, for instance, when a person is no longer able to make decisions or choices; when the benefits of continuing treatment are not clear; or when there is conflict about what is “best” in a given situation.

An ethics consultation is designed to assist patients, families and health care providers to identify, clarify and work through ethical concerns.
