Advanced medical technology sometimes creates complex choices, such as decisions about life-sustaining treatment or interpreting a living will. Circumstances can arise that present ethical dilemmas for you, your family or your doctor. You or your family may wish to discuss the ethical implications of pursuing certain recommended treatments. If you're unable to take part in your health care decisions, your family might find it difficult to make these decisions on your behalf. In such situations, the Ethics Committee is available to consult with you, your family, your authorized representative or your doctor.
