The Denver Hospice is guided in our values and ethics by The Denver Hospice Ethics Committee, which is comprised of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, certified nursing assistants, a registered dietitian, community members, attorneys, patient representatives, and others who are trained in biomedical and organizational ethics.
We have been locally recognized based on specific nomination criteria and benchmarked against other not-for-profit and for-profit organizations in the metro Denver area.
What is the purpose of the Ethics Committee?
The Denver Hospice Ethics Committee is available to listen and to help by identifying and discussing issues relating to patient care and end-of-life decisions. The Denver Hospice Ethics Committee facilitates resolution of specific concerns by and for hospice patients, their families and loved ones through ethics consultations. The Ethics Committee also provides education on treatment options for hospice patients and their families, healthcare providers and members of the community.
