While research concerning ethical competence in medical practice is frequent, ethical competence in health care management is less often studied. This ar- ticle focuses ethical competence and its preconditions with regard to health care managers’ identification and handling of conflicts of interest.The article is based on empirical research. The aim is to highlight the importance of ma- nagers’ ethical competence and what such competence need to contain in order to promote ethical responsibility and a healthy working environment. Of great importance for success are having rational emotions, an adequate ethical language and communicative skills in order to promote dialogue. But the political and administrative control system also needs to clearly articulate the ethical dimensions of the managers’ task, allocate resources for training in ethics, and ensure that support systems and evaluation focus not only on finances but also on the value-rational aspects with regard to what the health care organization is aimed for.
