Evaluating Ethics Quality

This special issue of AJOB Primary Research includes a set of articles describing key aspects of the IntegratedEthicsTM (IE) program of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system. The IE program (described more fully elsewhere; see, e.g., Fox et al. 2010) is intended to provide a comprehensive approach to promoting ethics quality in health care. Its goal is to transcend the traditional ethics committee approach by promoting ethical practices in health care using an assortment of tools to help systematize ethics consultation, support a perspective of continuous quality improvement in ethics, and foster an organizational environment and culture that makes it easy for health care personnel to “do the right thing.”
