Donnelley Ethics Program

Questions about values, health care options and individual beliefs frequently arise in the course of rehabilitation. At RIC we are committed to creating an atmosphere that encourages conflict resolution, value exploration and informed decision-making.

RIC's Donnelley Ethics Program is a resource for patients, families and RIC staff members. Services and resources include:

  • Clinical ethics consultations (formal and informal) on a case-by-case basis
  • Educational in-services, ethics grand rounds and lectures
  • A unique collection of disability and ethics resources

The program also addresses patients' rights issues for accreditation and quality improvement purposes and coordinates the Hospital Ethics Committee.

To arrange a consultation, educational opportunity or for other questions regarding clinical ethics at RIC, please call the Donnelley Ethics Program at 312-238-1885 or 312-238-1335.
