Clinical ethics is the identification, analysis and resolution of moral problems as they apply to individual patients. Patients, families and professionals bring to these discussions values and beliefs from their own faith traditions. Chaplains serve in a unique role to elicit these values from patients, families and even from their professionals. Thus they can assist in the ethics consultation process by helping all parties to better understand the value implications of these decisions.

Learning Objectives

1. To present a brief overview of the ethics consultation process.
2. To review the basic principles of secular medical ethics.
3. To explore basic principles of faith as they apply to the ethics consultation process.
