Good Decisions is a framework that assists healthcare leaders to make ethically justified system-level decisions. This article describes some of the features that make a decision ethically justified and discusses the experience of its use in one Canadian health authority. The framework sees the membership and relationships of the decision team, the quality of analysis, the breadth of consultation, and the implementation of and follow up on decisions, as all impacting a decision's ethical justification.
