BOPDHB Clinical Ethics Committee

Clinical practice raises a wide variety of ethical issues that can be difficult for individual health professionals to resolve. The BOPDHB Clinical Ethics Committee can provide support and advice to health professionals on ethical issues arising from clinical practice or patient care.

The work of the Committee falls into three areas:

  • Provide advice to health professionals on individual cases
  • Provide ethics input into the BOPDHB's policies and protocols around patient care
  • Facilitate clinical ethical learning and education
