NSHEN has developed this educational resource called Featured Article Summary. We will be choosing articles from recent health ethics  literature that we think will be of interest to ethics committee members as well as others working in our health care system.

We will create a summary of each article we feature for those too busy to read it in its entirety and, through our agreement with Access Copyright, will provide the full article to those who are interested.
