Today's health care environment is filled with challenging and complex questions.
- How do I determine which options for my care best reflect my values and beliefs?
- How do I decide what healthcare options are in my best interest?
- Who can help me weigh the risks and benefits of treatment options as they relate to me?
- Can I choose to stop a treatment once it is started?
- What happens if my family members do not agree with my decision?
- Who will make my healthcare decisions if I cannot speak for myself?
Often questions like these are met with uncertainty and indecision. Knowing which decision to make and which course of action to take can seem overwhelming. If this happens, the support and help of CHI Health Ethics Services is here for you.
