Ethics is the study of morality. It asks which actions are right and which are wrong. Decisions about medical treatment can be hard because we don’t always know what a patient might want or how best to meet his or her needs.

The Ottawa Hospital ‘s Ethics Service can help patients and staff members work through these issues in a safe and respectful manner. We can listen, offer helpful information, and work through problems in a neutral way.

If you find yourself in a tough situation and can find no clear or satisfactory answer, feel free to contact the Ethics Service. We will guide you through the process.
