Health Ethics Guide (HEG)

HegresizedThe Catholic Health Alliance of Canada Health Ethics Guide is the foundational ethics resource used by Covenant Health. Key clinical and organizational policies, ethics consultations and ethics education at Covenant Health are based on the principles contained in the ethics guide. It is also a defining document of our organizational identity referenced in the Cooperation and Service Agreement with Alberta Health Services.

The guide is intended to help providers navigate the complex ethical issues encountered while providing service to the people in our care. The guide is also a key component of board orientation, leadership development programs for staff and the privileging process with physicians. 

Hard copies are available at no charge for our physicians from the Covenant Health Medical Affairs office or from your site administration office in continuing care or rural areas. Alternatively, copies can be requested from the Mission, Ethics and Spirituality Covenant Health Office by calling 780.735.9597.
