At St. Joseph’s Health Care, London, we use the Health Ethics Guide published by the Catholic Health Alliance of Canada (CHAC) as our code of ethics.
This guide is an easy-to-read reference to the fundamental values and principles used in ethical decision-making. It presents a moral vision reflecting Roman Catholic teaching on health ethics as it applies to the complex ethical issues of contemporary society. It covers pertinent aspects pertaining to those receiving care from health and social service organizations and the moral obligations of those who govern and administer such organizations.
The publication is relevant for caregivers, personnel and all those interested in sound ethical reflection.
