In the initial theoretical training of caregivers (doctors, nurses, etc.), only a few hours are devoted to ethics.
– Ethics committees exist in many health or medico-social structures (hospitals, clinics, retirement homes, etc.). They generally aim to lead a reflection at the level of the establishment to establish recommendations, care protocols, etc.
– Clinical ethics consultations are intended to address unique situations in the field of care or support. The first was created in 2002 at the CHU Cochin Port-Royal (Paris), the second in 2009 at the CHU de Nantes. There are about ten in France, made up of caregivers and non-caregivers (sociologists, lawyers, etc.).
– Team staff within departments in hospitals can enable caregivers to discuss their daily ethical questions.
– Regional spaces for ethical reflection have the mission of developing an “ethical culture” among health professionals and the general public. They offer training, public debates, documentation, conferences, etc.
