A clinical ethicist is a professional who provides expertise in ethical analysis to clinical and organizational ethics issues arising in a healthcare environment. The ethicist, providing support to the appropriate decision-makers involved (patients, substitute decision-makers, healthcare professionals or administrators) ensures ethical issues are identified, that risks and benefits of proposed alternative courses of action are considered when there is uncertainty regarding value-laden concerns emerging in health care.
The ethicist will also work towards facilitating an ethical resolution through the planning of a fair process and the provision of a bioethics mediation approach.
The ethicist guided by the Ethics Framework of the organization also provides education, training and understanding of the concepts used in clinical practice.
