Advanced medical technology sometimes creates complex choices and raises difficult ethical questions regarding a patient's rights, advance directives that may be in place, and the healthcare team's responsibilities. We acknowledge that healthcare decisions can be difficult. It may be hard to decide what is truly in the patient's best interest or what treatment options reflect the patient's wishes. Making these decisions is difficult, and we are committed to offering you a process in which the "best" or "right" options can be determined in accordance with your values and convictions. The Bioethics Committee is available when you need A Place to Turn When You Face Difficult Choices.
