Our Mission

The mission of CHCE is to foster the development of a vibrant research culture focused on enhancing the ethical quality of health care. We are committed to a research program of knowledge translation based on dialogue and collaborative actions in health care ethics among members of Lakehead University and other educational institutions, healthcare professionals and their organization, and the general public.

Our Goal is to create a research and educational program in health care ethics that is nationally recognized by:

  • Fostering collaborative interdisciplinary research which emanates from the centre
  • Generating and promoting educational events in the ethics of health care for our members, academic staff, students, healthcare professionals and the public
  • Participating in the shared bioethicist program with other institutions in the city and region
  • Providing consultations, analysis and advice on ethical aspects of policy developments to the private and public healthcare sector
