Abstract

Community hospitals ethics committees rarely have formal support from persons within the academic community. The author discusses a liaison between a suburban hospital system and a nearby university school of nursing that garners positive educational, service, and programmatic benefits, related to ethics, for both. The lessons learned and insights gained by a faculty member serving on the ethics committee are examined.
