Ethics Consultation Service (ECS)
ECS are services that aim to help patients, families, staff, leaders, and other stakeholders resolve ethical concerns at Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH). All health care organizations should support and ensure timely access to ECS. This recommendation aligns with Accreditation Canada requirements. The goal of ECS is to improve health-care quality by facilitating the resolution of ethical concerns in clinical and non-clinical areas.
An ethics consultation can be requested by anyone at CMH (staff, patients, families, etc.), at any time, and for any reason. All formal ethics consultations will be provided by a qualified external Ethicist from Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences.
