Code of Ethical Practice

The Code of Ethics was developed by the RANZCOG Bioethics Working Group, chaired by Dr John Palmer, in late 2001. It was extensively revised in early 2006 and renamed the RANZCOG Code of Ethical Practice.

The principles set out in this document are intended to aid Fellows, Members, Trainees and Diplomates in maintaining a high level of ethical Practice. They are standards by which a member may guage the appropriateness of his/her Practice in relationships with patients, colleagues, other professionals and members of the public. 

The RANZCOG Code of Ethical Practice is designed to complement the FIGO document Recommendations on the Ethical Issues in Obstetrics and Gynaecology issued by the FIGO Committee for the Ethical Aspects of Human Reproduction and Women's Health.
