The Roles and Functions of Hospital-Based Ethics Committees
Canadian Medical Association Journal. 1996 Apr 1; 154(7): 1094-1095.
Ethics committees ar becoming much more visible on the Canadian health care scene. They range from research-ethics committees that decide whether research projects are ethically sound to case-oriented committees that look at particular issues and give advice. Eike-Henner Kluge says that ethics committees are useful tools, but only when they are appropriately constituted and function in a professional manner. Otherwise, he warns, they become either useless or a liability.
