About NOPHO-NOBOS ETHICS

The group has established itself as a competence- and reference group in the field of paediatric oncological ethics.  Physicians and nurses, from all Nordic countries, are represented in the group. So far, the group has been able to recruit members who engage with both personal dedication and active engagement. See below under “Group members and contact”

The group mainly works with Clinical Ethics Support in paediatric oncology. Members also perform research in clinical ethics. At present, education in guiding Ethics Case Reflection (ECR) rounds is offered to healthcare personel, see below under Offered Education.

Initially there was a focus on self-education, by surveying the field of ethics and identifying relevant areas applicable to paediatric oncology, and this is ever present. The accumulating knowledge and skills of individual members in the group is of paramount importance to the group as a whole, and therefore it is important that the member list is fairly stable over time.
