The art of the chart note in clinical ethics consultation and bioethics mediation: conveying information that can be understood and evaluated.

Author information

New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, Nancy, USA.


Unlike bioethics mediators who are employed by healthcare organizations as outside consultants, mediators who are embedded in an institution must be authorized to chronicle a clinical ethics consultation (CEC) or a mediation in a patient's medical chart. This is an important privilege, as the chart is a legal document. In this article I discuss this important part of a bioethics mediator's tool kit in my presentation of a case illustrating how bioethics mediation may proceed, and what this approach using both bioethics and mediation may add.
