Introduction

The Society for Bioethics Consultation (SBC) was officially established in 1986. Its mission was to study ethics consultation and to support those who provided it in health care at that time. The SBC was the first specialty group to focus on ethics consultation.

In early 1998, the SBC merged with the American Society for Bioethics and the Society for Health and Human Values to form the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities.
