Code of Ethics

iStock_000017860939XSmall.jpgAs an offshoot of an initiative designed to explore working conditions and issues of employment for bioethicists in Canada, a draft code of ethics for practicing bioethicists has been developed by a task force of the Canadian Bioethics Society.

A similar initiative is currently being undertaken by the American Society for Bioethics & Humanities standing committee on Clinical Ethics Consultation Affairs (CECA). Their draft Code of Professional Responsibilities of Health Care Ethics Consultants is available for viewing and feedback.
