National Center for Ethics in Health Care
IntegratedEthics Program Management
The IntegratedEthics (IE) model includes a variety of structures and processes to support effective program management.
The IE Council serves as the leadership body to provide oversight for the program. The council oversees implementation of the program; reviews and participates in development of ethics-related policies; and coordinates ethics activities throughout the facility. The IE Council is chaired by a senior leader of the facility, who serves as a role model for ethical leadership, establishing a strong "tone at the top." The IE Program Officer (IEPO) directs the day-to-day operations of the program and acts as administrative officer for the council.
The IntegratedEthics tools listed on this page are just a few of those available to support a strong IE program. Additional key IE tools are located in the Index to IE Resources or in the Learning Resources Catalog.
