The Ethics Committee


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.
