Healthcare Ethics Committee (HEC) covers basic healthcare ethics committee attributes including general mission, varying structures, and membership, as well as the roles, responsibilities, and functions of HECs and case consultants. It discusses the main ethical theories and principles for healthcare ethics, and how HEC members can use these theoretical foundations to identify, analyze, and help resolve ethical issues.
It also addresses many common issues encountered by HECs including informed consent, advance directives, decision making for capacitated and incapacitated patients, end-of-life issues, medical confidentiality, neonatal and maternal-fetal ethics, and allocation.
It is primarily intended for current and prospective HEC members. It may also be useful to healthcare professionals who routinely have to identify, analyze, and resolve clinical ethics issues, as well as hospital, nursing home, and hospice administrators.
