David Schiedermayer and John La Puma
The Journal of Clinical Ethics 23, no. 2 (Summer 2012): 172-174.
In response to an article by Acres and colleagues, “Credentialing the Clinical Ethics Consultant: An Academic Medical Center Affirms Professionalism and Practice,”1 the authors urge continued action for the credentialing and certification of clinical ethics consultants. They also promote a vigorous and engaged model for ethics consultation.
