The Center for Ethical Solutions’ Mission
The Center for Ethical Solutions (CES) is focused on finding practical answers to the difficult questions of medical ethics and health policy — answers that look beyond the preconceived and the usual, and that provide people with options that might otherwise be overlooked.
Our officers, advisors, and researchers are what set CES apart: We pride ourselves on placing a higher value on solving problems than on finding answers that fit neatly into any particular political framework. We don’t deny that each of us has come to this project with a well-developed sense of our own political and moral beliefs. However, when faced with issues as urgent as the organ shortage, as controversial as doctor/patient-directed pain management, as tragic as the state of medical care available to our veterans, as convoluted as the current legal “definition of death,” or as personal as helping people implement end-of-life healthcare decision, allowing politics to dictate the scope of options available to people is simply unthinkable. If such considerations limited the scope of our studies as well, we wouldn’t be able to call this endeavor, “the Center for Ethical Solutions.”
