Please complete the following survey about the clinical ethics questions and/or concerns that arise in your organization, as well as staff training and/or resource needs that would be beneficial to you. We hope to better understand the nature of ethical issues encountered in Vermont and New Hampshire health care settings, and use that information to assist us in developing programming and services that support and promote ethics quality and healthcare improvement throughout our region.

All responses will be deidentified and handled confidentially.

For the purpose of this survey, we define "Ethics Committee" as a group of people "from diverse backgrounds who support health care institutions with three major functions: providing clinical ethics consultation, developing and/or revising policies pertaining to clinical ethics and hospital policy... and facilitating education about topical issues in clinical ethics" (from Ethics in Medicine, University of Washington, 2013).

The Vermont Ethics Network thanks you in advance for assisting us in understanding the ethics needs that exist in Vermont & New Hampshire.
