Abstract
Ethics Nova Scotia Health supports all patients, families, volunteers, staff, and health care providers when they need help making hard choices or when there is disagreement about what is most important. Ethics is about how we connect our actions and our values. We answer ethics questions by thinking about our values, or what is important to us. When you or someone you care about is sick or hurt, it can be hard to figure out what to do. It may help to figure out what is worrying you or making you upset. It may also help to think about your choices and talk with others about what is going on. This ethics tool can help you decide what is important and what to do. It includes things to think about when exploring the issue on your own or with others, and a list of ethics resources.
