Struggling with an ethical issue?
We have created a series of educational videos on some of the most common ethical issues in clinical care. Each video is seven minutes or less and includes information on statutes or policy when relevant. (Note: None of the information in these videos should be interpreted as legal advice. If you have legal questions, please consult the office of General Counsel.)
