OLIVEIRA, Maridite Cristóvão Gomes de; OLIVEIRA, Reinaldo Ayer de  e  NOGUEIRA-MARTINS, Maria Cezira Fantini. The experience of the Bioethics Committee from a public hospital. Rev. Bioét. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.2, pp.338-347. ISSN 1983-8042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-80422017252194.

The objective of this study was to analyze and systematize the experience of the bioethics committee from the Hospital Geral de São Matheus (General Hospital of São Mateus), which is a public hospital in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. We adopted the qualitative research method, with the case study strategy. Two research techniques were applied: record analysis and an open ended questionnaire answered by the bioethics committee participants. Four categories were established after analyzing the material: history and evolution of the bioethics committee; motivation to participate in the bioethics committee; memorable cases discussed by the committee; suggestions for the improvement of the bioethics committee. It was noted that besides discussing and deliberating, the bioethics committee also developed an educational role for the involved professionals and teams. This role was also expanded to the institution as a whole, by means of symposia with topics related to bioethics. This study reveals the importance of stimulating the creations of such forums in Brazilian healthcare institutions.
