Health Ethics Guide

by Catholic Health Alliance of Canada

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This current revision of the Health Ethics Guide is meant to provide guidance around new advances in science and medicine. It seeks to more firmly ground the guide in the Gospel message of Jesus as exemplified in the parable of the Good Samaritan.
The goal of the Health Ethics Guide is threefold: 1. to remind readers of the fundamental commitment within the Catholic tradition to the ministry of caring for those who are sick and suffering; 2. to articulate the values and principles found within that tradition by providing guidelines for ethical decision making; and 3. to promote a pastoral understanding of how these principles and values can guide decision making in health and social services.
