Welcome to the ACES Tool

The purpose of the Assessing Clinical Ethics Skills (ACES) tool is to assess the competency and proficiency of clinical ethics consultants in conducting ethics consultations. The ACES project provides training on how to understand and apply the tool to rate the skills of clinical ethics consultants in simulated ethics case consultations. The ACES tool draws on the Core Competencies for Health Care Ethics Consultation created by the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities and the Ethics Consultant Proficiency Assessment Tool from the Integrated Ethics Program at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
