    Optimising the Documentation Practices of an Ethics Consultation Service.K. A. Bramstedt, A. R. Jonsen, W. S. Andereck, J. W. McGaughey & A. B. Neidich - 2009 - Journal of Medical Ethics 35 (1):47-50.
    A formal Ethics Consultation Service (ECS) can provide significant help to patients, families and hospital staff. As with any other form of clinical consultation, documentation of the process and the advice rendered is very important. Upon review of the published consult documentation practices of other ECSs, we judged that none of them were sufficiently detailed or structured to meet the needs and purposes of a clinical ethics consultation.
