Abstract: The first official healthcare ethics committee convened in 1971. But the origin of such committees came years earlier in response to a rising tide of moral concern in health care. “Committees for the Discussion of Morals in Medicine” were formed by U.S. Catholic Hospitals in the 1960s in response to increasing social awareness of personal rights and the new dilemmas created by evolving life saving medical technology.
