This month’s issue of Medical Ethics Advisor is a special issue on quality and ethics. Our cover story reports on efforts to create a national standard for individuals who perform clinical ethics consultations. Inside, we cover standards for training on clinical ethics consults, how to demonstrate providers’ satisfaction with ethics consults, how to begin to assess the quality of an organization’s ethics program, the VHA’s comprehensive approach to ethics evaluation, a growing trend of ethicists seeing more complex cases, and new research on identification of quality measures for ethics consults.
