The National Center for Ethics in Health Care (NCEHC) provides substantive analysis of topics in health care ethics in two publications, IN fOCUS and Ethics Rx, and publishes ethics-related news in a quarterly Update on NCEHC activities and initiatives. We also post summaries of National Ethics Teleconferences and publish reports by VHA’s National Ethics Committee.

Note: The information contained in NCEHC publications is current as of the date of publication. However, health care ethics is a dynamic field in which best practices and thinking are constantly evolving. Therefore, some information in our publications may become outdated or may be superseded. We note these instances when they occur, and we encourage users to consult additional authorities on these topics, including current VA policy and regulation.
