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.
Requesting a Consultation
A patient, family members or any health care providers involved in the care of the patient may ask for a consultation by contacting the Health Care Ethics Service. Call 204-235-3619.
All consultations are strictly confidential.
