The Ethics Consulting Program provides consultations to patients and their families, health care providers, and researchers at UTMB Health.
Patients, their families, and health care practitioners sometimes face ethically hard, confusing, or conflicted choices. When this happens, they may not be sure how to make the best or right choice. The UTMB Ethics Consultation Service facilitates discussion, analysis and understanding of ethical issues in patient care, and provides ethically appropriate recommendations for solving problems arising in health care practice and research.
The UTMB Research Ethics Consultation Service promotes integrity and strives for clarity in the midst of what can be complex and confusing ethical situations that arise in the conduct of clinical and translational research.
