Ethics

Ethical issues arise when people hold differing strong values and views about the appropriate course of action to follow, for example, for treatment, care, or resource allocation. 

The Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region Ethics Committee can help to clarify ethical issues. The Committee is a group of community members and health region staff who are trained and practiced in helping people to evaluate their options so they can make the best and most informed decision in a difficult situation.

An ethics case review or consultation can be requested by any patient, family member of health care provider with an ethical concern.  A patient or family member can request a consultation by speaking to a health care team member.
