Ethics KEG

The Ethics Knowledge Education Group (KEG) aims to promote discussions and collaboration among SCCM members with an interest in ethics. The KEG will address topics chosen by the platform's participants, with subsections centered on particular themes such as end of life, moral distress, and other important ethical issues in critical care.

The goal is to provide opportunities for all members, including those who do not currently sit on SCCM’s Ethics committee, to focus on topics in critical care ethics and provide education, collaboration, and discussion.

Join the Ethics KEG to join the conversation, connect with other participants, and access the library of resources.
