Evaluating Parents' Perspectives of Pediatric Ethics Consultation

HEC Forum 25 (2):183-189 (2013)

Ethics consultation is a familiar concept to clinicians, and there are site-specific guidelines detailing procedures for both obtaining and performing these consults. Evaluative data about clinician experiences with ethics consults are becoming more extensive but information about family experiences, especially parent perceptions, of the same is lacking. Without a better understanding of those family experiences, an evidence base for ethics consultations cannot be built. This manuscript describes the reasons for obtaining this necessary information, details prior research designed to obtain knowledge about family experiences with pediatric ethics consultations, and suggests mechanisms for acquiring it
