Ethical & Religious Directives
The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services was written by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. This document discusses common health care issues that occur at the beginning and end of life, giving a Catholic perspective for potential dilemmas concerning these issues.
An ethical consultation can be asked for by any member of the Medical Staff or patient/family. A case manager, chaplain, or member of the Palliative Care team can contact a ethics committee member who will arrange for the consultation.
