Evaluating Clinical Ethics Consultation: A European Perspective


This paper focuses on the topic of evaluation of clinical ethics consultation. The concept of evaluation seems to contain an internal tension: On the one hand, evaluation is seen (by some authors) as distorting the conceptual and normative content of the case(s) under scrutiny and, on the other, the evaluative act is the most important use of judgment and an inescapable part of everyday life (e.g., the decision to buy a certain car or eat certain food is based on our own evaluations). As such, we maintain that evaluation is essential.
