Ethics Consultation Practice


Prof Bramstedt founded AskTheEthicist in 2002.  In 2017, the consultation practice became AskTheEthicist, LLC.


Ethical dilemmas arrive in all shapes and sizes, and can affect many domains: health/medicine, research, business, career, finance, and family. 

Ethicists work with clients to offer proactive steps to avoid ethical conflict, and also to solve active dilemmas.

Beginning in 2002 and formerly on staff at The Cleveland Clinic, Professor Bramstedt has worked in inpatient and outpatient clinical settings, as well as industry, performing 1000+ consultations involving a variety of topics (e.g., research ethics, bioethics, futility, transplant and organ donation, research protocol review, conflict of interest, leadership, organizational ethics, ethics training). She has been active in medical student and doctoral education including curriculum development, teaching, and assessment, as well as research supervision, and misconduct and wellness.  Currently, she is a Professor (adjunct) at Bond University School of Medicine.

She has worked with biotech, pharma, medical device companies, patients, family members, medical teams, NGOs, IRBs/RECs, OPOs, the FDA, NIH, television producers, and attorneys.  Additionally, she has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed medical and ethics journals, and lectured nationally and internationally.
