The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate and investigate the activities of Hospital Ethics Committee (HEC) in a hospital, and to validate the significance of HEC in ethics support. HEC have three functions: ethics consultation, policy development, and education. Although HEC have recently been established in some hospitals of Japan, it has been considered that the activities of HEC are insufficient to support the ethics in medical practice yet. In this paper, one of the authors playing a central role of the HEC, described activity of the HEC. Then, we discuss ethics support for ethical medical practice through his report of the HEC activity. Finally, we show that description and identification of organization/group behavior is important for develop of ethics support via HEC.
