Ethics Centre

Supporting health care decision makers...

...when there is conflict or uncertainty about the "best" thing to do.


Ethics Touches Everyone

From the bedside to the boardroom, whether you are deciding how to respond to a medical emergency, how to distribute resources fairly, or how to maintain integrity when faced with challenges.

The Covenant Health Ethics Centre is a hub for ethics practitioners and laypeople alike, engaged in Catholic healthcare and business conversations around:

  • professional ethics.
  • clinical ethics.
  • business ethics.
  • research ethics.


Providing Education, Support, Resources and Tools

The Covenant Health Ethics Centre is your one-stop source to develop and implement excellent ethical standards and practices, providing learning and education support, plus the professional resources and tools.
