At Trillium Health Partners, everyone has a role to play in ensuring the ethical delivery of care, from the point of care to the boardroom. Ethical principles and values are incorporated into the way that decisions are made and care is delivered every day.
The Regional Ethics Program based at Trillium Health Partners provides ethics services to patients, families, staff, students, and volunteers across all sites, as well as to a number of external organizations. Ethics services include: delivering education; reviewing, developing, implementing, and evaluating ethics-related policies; participating on relevant hospital committees and working groups; and conducting ethics consultations. Requests for ethics consultation can be made by anyone including patients and family members.
The Ethicists with the Regional Ethics Program work collaboratively across sites. Their overarching role is to facilitate and support ethical decision-making throughout the organization through the identification, analysis, and resolution of ethical issues.
