Ethics Advisory Committee

The North Shore Medical Center Ethics Advisory Committee consists of members of the NSMC staff and community with special training in biomedical ethics. Rapid progress in the medical sciences makes health decisions more complex. The NSMC Ethics Advisory Committee is available to help patients and families weigh all the options needed to make a decision, and they can offer feedback and suggestions based upon ethical principles.
