Integrating Bioethics and Health Law Into the Canadian Institutes of Health Research

Context

  • The centrality of value questions in guiding and implementing research and health care policy makes bioethics and health law distinct in their place within the CIHR structures.
  • The CIHR must support excellent research in bioethics and health law both for its own sake and in order to ensure that the background work is in place to make good policy decisions about health research, practice, and policies.
