About Us

The Aletheia Conscience Project was created to provide an opportunity for people invested in ethical health care to discover what conscience is, and how it can be used for ethical decision making in health care practice.

Research related to conscience empowers health care professionals to understand what their conscience is and how to use it to make ethical health care decisions. ACP researchers are invested in this project because we recognize that bioethics is about health care professionals doing what is right for patients, as well as themselves.

The ACP was created with the understanding that everyone desires to be seen, heard and understood in the context of bioethics and health care practice. In recognition of this, the ACP team generates new knowledge to support health care stakeholders to make conscientious decisions for patients and themselves. With this knowledge, we support ethical health care practice through transparent conversations about conscience across all levels of health care.
