Also in Clinical Ethics Committee:
The aim of the clinical ethics committee is to support clinicians in their everyday ethical decision making processes. The Grampian Clinical Ethics Committee is a multi-disciplinary committee which meets once a month to provide a forum for confidential discussion and analysis of relevant issues arising from clinical practice. Please note that the role of the committee is advisory and educational rather than prescriptive. The dates of the CEC meetings are available online.
Ethical dilemmas may arise in the course of clinical work and ethical support can be useful in guiding decision making. The Clinical Ethics Committee is able to offer ethical support if required. The ethical issue raised will be discussed at the next Clinical Ethics Committee meeting.
The ethics committee can also, if required, provide rapid guidance to more acute clinical situations through discussion with a small case consultation group of the committee. If the issue needs to be addressed urgently, please contact:
