Get Involved: Community Call

Call for Community RepresentativesOur Ethics Services provide support and assistance in building the ethics culture of Eastern Health.
Our main activities relate to ethics education, policy review and development, consultations on ethically complex issues and cases, and advocacy to ensure we are doing the right things and doing things right.

Eastern Health has five ethics committees that focus on different programs and service areas. We have at two representatives from the community on each committee. The committees are:
  • Adult Acute Care Ethics Committee
  • Children and Women’s Health Ethics Committee
  • Mental Health and Addictions Ethics Committee
  • Long-term Care Ethics Committee
  • Administrative Ethics Committee
We also have activities and initiatives on which we need advice and feedback from members of the public. Feedback may be provided by attending special consultation sessions or by reviewing draft documents.

What you need to know

Members of the public do not require particular education or training prior to becoming involved with our ethics initiatives. Only an interest and desire to participate and a willingness to share your perspective and advice are required. By joining our ethics services, you will be representing the public rather than a specific stakeholder or advocacy group.

An orientation will be provided and selected individuals will be required to sign an Eastern Health Pledge of Confidentiality.
