Project Update - Ethics - Practices and Needs in Public Health Ethics - March 2018

Summary of a literature review

In our November 2017 update, we said that the Centre had been working with a research group at the École de santé publique de l'Université de Montréal (ÉSPUM - the University of Montréal's School of Public Health). We discovered that we had many common interests with respect to public health ethics in Canada and that the group had already begun work on finding out the state of ethics education in schools of public health in Canada and around the world. Based on that work, we have produced a short, summary document that presents the main points from their literature review. That summary will be available here in April 2018.

We encourage readers to consult the original article, available here (open access): https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s40889-017-0038-y

Two surveys

We partnered with the group at ÉSPUM in 2017 to conduct a survey of schools of PH to better understand the state of PH ethics teaching (what is taught, how and by whom, perceived appropriateness, further needs, etc.) in 32 Canadian university PH programs and schools. The preliminary results of that survey are now available. To learn more, click here.

Also in 2017, the Centre led a second survey of Canadian PH stakeholders at all levels on the ethics resources they use in practice and their needs for additional tools and training. The preliminary results of that survey are now available. To learn more, click here.

We will be presenting and discussing the results of these surveys during a symposium at the Canadian Public Health Association's Public Health 2018, on May 29, 2018, in Montréal. For more information, click here. https://www.cpha.ca/concurrent-sessions-2  (On the CPHA's conference website)
