Consortium Ethics Program

The Consortium Ethics Program provides long-term, comprehensive continuing ethics education for a diverse range of professionals, including nurses, physicians, attorneys, social workers, administrators, and others interested in health care ethics.  Health care institutions and individuals seeking to enhance patient-centered care, educate ethics consultants, or revitalize an ethics committee can benefit from educational programs tailored to their individual needs, and can access the CEP's registry of highly-qualified, engaging speakers prepared to address a broad range of topics to support institutional ethics education initiatives.

Founded in 1990, the CEP is the premier health care ethics education network in western Pennsylvania serving the surrounding tri-state area. Drawing on the expertise of the Center for Bioethics & Health Law affiliated faculty, as well as faculty from institutions of the Pittsburgh Area Bioethics Partnership and other nationally recognized experts, the CEP offers classes and conferences to help individuals develop the skills and knowledge base necessary to address ethical dilemmas arising in their home institutions and professional practices.
