Center for Ethics in Health Care
Ethical issues in health care pose some of the most challenging questions that health professionals ever face. And the questions change; each advancement in technology, each new piece of legislation can bring a fresh barrage of ethical dilemmas for health professionals and society at large.
The Center for Ethics in Health Care at OHSU was established in 1989 to address these pressing concerns by seeking solutions through collaboration, scholarly debate and research among many disciplines. The ultimate goals of the Center are to promote more careful attention to the rights and dignity of individual patients and to increase the participation of health care professionals in this society’s search for just and prudent health policies.
