The Redemptorist Bioethics Consultancy was begun in September 1992 by the Redemptorists of Canada in recognition of the needs of health care institutions for assistance with medical/moral decision-making in the complex issues of our day.
The consultancy wishes to make its expertise and services available for all Catholic health care facilities and personnel in Western Canada. The consultancy is also open to other health care facilities and personnel seeking guidance in the many ethical questions facing health care today.
A native Westerner, born in Edmonton, Dr. Miller studied in Winnipeg, Toronto and Germany before completeing his doctorate in moral theology (1992) at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. After receiving his doctorate, Fr. Mark spent 16 years as a clinical bioethicist working at and out of St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He has taught and provided workshops at Catholic Colleges, in adult formation programs, for Catholic teachers, and many health care practitioners. He is now the provincial of the English-speaking Redemptorists of Canada. He continues his clinical ethics work part-time at the Centre for Clinical Ethics at St. Joseph’s and St. Michael’s Hospitals in Toronto.
Dr. Miller is the author of books and numerous articles on Bioethics.
