Ethics Resource Hub

Welcome to the Ethics Resource Hub!

The public trusts veterinarians to make sound, ethical decisions. Moral conflicts arise in daily practice - whether it is related to euthanasia, animal use or abuse, quality of life, conflicts of interest, informed consent, or colleagues in distress. Even in the most challenging ethical issue, a veterinarian must decide on the course of action that will best address the situation. It is not always straightforward, but it is necessary. Throughout the Ethics Resource Hub, you will find resources to assist veterinarians in building their skills in ethical decision-making. 

Ethics E-Learning Module

The E-Learning Module assists you in determining the most appropriate ethical action in situations of uncertainty. The module includes information on professional ethics; the Code of Ethics; and a model for ethical decision-making.
