Established in 1995, the Center for Healthcare Ethics serves as the hub for various clinical, educational, and research-related activities directed towards recognizing and addressing ethical issues at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The central orientation of all its programming is to address ethical issues as they are actually presented and encountered within the clinical and research contexts.
Guided by the Center's Director, Stuart G. Finder, PhD, the Center engages in four principal activities:
- ethics consultation;
- education: for faculty and staff, students, and other within the Cedars-Sinai community;
- participation on institutional committees, task force, etc.;
- policy formation or revision.
Of secondary import, the Center for Healthcare Ethics also engages in scholarly exploration of the ethical values and moral dynamics characterizing and influencing healthcare and healthcare research.
