Ethics and quality care are common drivers for healthcare organisations. Both are based on ethics principles that are the foundation for quality, and are synergistic with the Institute of Medicine's six quality aims. This paper describes the relationship between ethics principles and the goals of improving quality, safety and value. It demonstrates how healthcare staff, quality improvement professionals and ethics committee members could apply a quality improvement framework to address and prevent ethics issues.
