CHEF supports the Colorado health care ethics community by:
Cultivating the foundations of ethical practice by providing education, training and resources to members of ethics committees and others involved in ethics consultation;
Helping advance awareness of ethical issues by promoting opportunities for ethics education statewide;
Educating community members to become effective individual and organizational providers of ethical health care and conduits for information and resources to the larger health care community;
Facilitating opportunities for collaboration and networking of persons and organizations interested in participating in health care ethics.
Our Vales: The activities of CHEF are guided by the following core values:
Open communication and collaborative dialogue are integral to the practice of ethics.
The practice of ethics should be interdisciplinary and inclusive of all health care settings, cultures, and viewpoints.
Ethical practice is based in a firm foundation of ethical knowledge and method.
Advocating for the importance of ethics committees, ethics consultation, and integration of ethical considerations into all dimensions of health care is critical to sustained ethical practice.
Ethical awareness must include a balance of concern for the individual patient and the constraints of the larger system, including the just distribution of resources among health care organizations and the larger society.
Ethical practice is not a destination, but a journey that requires constant focus on enhancing the quality and integrity of ethical practice.
