Bioethics Consultation

Consulting Group
Our Bioethics Consultation Services were developed to provide health care ethics expertise to area health care systems. We work with each health care system to create a contract tailored to the needs of the organization. This expertise may, for example, include:

  • providing a needs assessment
  • designing an educational plan
  • presenting educational or training programs
  • assisting with hospital policy development
  • establishing the organizational procedures and bylaws for the institutional ethics committee 
  • ethicist participation in hospital ethics committee meetings
  • facilitating ethics consults

Contracts are developed on a monthly retainer basis or fee-for-service.


Kathy Kinlaw leads the consulting service. If you are interested in learning more about how the Bioethics Consultation Service could benefit your organization, see below:
