The National Rural Bioethics Project

Welcome to the website for the National Rural Bioethics Project.  This project, housed at The University of Montana, was established to create a formal mechanism for sustained bioethics-related research and program development in rural communities and rural healthcare settings. To meet that goal, past and current studies have been designed to:

  • Assess and document the needs for bioethics services in rural healthcare settings
  • Identify emerging ethics-related issues
  • Coordinate bioethics expertise
  • Develop and disseminate materials and resources

By exploring how rural healthcare providers and residents identify, discuss, and resolve ethics-related issues that complicate the delivery of healthcare, this effort will help establish a foundation for ongoing ethics-related research in rural settings. Project activities are designed to benefit health and human service personnel, recipients of healthcare services, formal service networks, and the general public.
