Presentation - How to (and Why) Analyze the Ethics of Paternalistic Policies in Public Health

March 2017.  Description. PPT  1.2 MB..
.

On January 18, 2017, Olivier Bellefleur made a presentation on the ethical issues associated with paternalistic policies and interventions in public health at a lunch-hour conference (a “conference-midi”) with the Direction de la santé publique de la Montérégie, the public health unit of Québec's Montérégie region. The presentation aimed to:

  • Define the concept of paternalism;
  • Explain why public health actors might be attracted to paternalistic policies and interventions;
  • Explain why they should be hesitant about promoting such policies and interventions without first conducting an ethical analysis;
  • Propose an approach for conducting such an ethical analysis.
