Clinical ethics deals with specific solutions to difficult clinical decisions. We review ethical issues of varying scope from day-to-day clinical practice, including the rare occasion when a situation is critical. Our individual case consultations are designed for patients and their relatives as well as the treatment team.
We want to help all those involved by taking a reflected and neutral view and support patients and families in making decisions in difficult situations.
The clinical ethics team also offers training sessions for employees at the University Hospital Zurich. The clinical ethics committee and all other responsible parties formulate key recommendations and guidance on relevant ethical issues affecting the entire hospital. We work with national and international bodies and are involved in various research projects in the field of clinical ethics.
