The Institut Jules Bordet Ethics Committee is an independent body whose role includes:
- monitoring and advising on ethical aspects of hospital care practices;
- assisting in decision-making on ethical aspects of individual cases;
- giving its opinion on all protocols for experimentation on humans prior to implementation.
The opinions of the Ethics Committee are confidential. They are given in a reasoned report, sent exclusively to the applicant and reflect the different viewpoints of the Committee members.
The Committee may reject an application, giving a reasoned decision for this rejection.
Before submitting an opinion application file to the Ethics Committee, please contact the principal investigator’s secretariat.
Some members of the Ethics Committee, including Dr Lossignol and Dr Bron, provide training in ethics and professional ethics. They are also members of the Belgian Bioethics Advisory Committee.
