Abstract:
Describes similarities and differences between ethics committees in acute care settings and in rehabilitation settings. Discusses procurement of informed consent for services that are rarely discrete, variable levels of program participation, complex cost-benefit analyses that are subject to less relevant values and biases, unequal access to services, limits of confidentiality, and family/caregiver issues.
