A basic level of ethics knowledge is essential for any member of an ethics committee. Most ethics committees set the expectation that each member will meet certain prerequisites for ethics knowledge. This can be achieved by completion of university-level coursework in ethics, attendance at workshops or educational opportunities, or self-learning activities.

This Reference List suggests basic, foundational references on ethical theory that would be helpful for ethics committees and their members (or anyone interested in learning more about ethics). This list also includes suggestions for some important resources that will provide background and guidance specific to ethical decision-making in the site, program, region or context.
