Organizations and Events


Is your medical association developing or revising a policy or guidelines on an ethical issue? You may want to get advice from others that have already dealt with the issue. Here are three lists of organizations that are engaged in ethics activities: one for national medical associations (with web site, link to Code of Ethics, and email address for ethics contact), the second for international organizations (web site only), and the third for directories of national ethics committees and bioethics organisations.
