Workshop – How Can We Nuance Our Thinking About Paternalism in Public Health?
Olivier Bellefleur and Michael Keeling facilitated a three-hour workshop on paternalism in public health and on the Centre's approach to ethics during a bioethics course at the Université de Montréal.

.

On February 23, 2017, Olivier Bellefleur and Michael Keeling were invited to facilitate a three-hour workshop in the course Bioéthique et santé publique (Bioethics and public health) offered to postgraduate students at the Université de Montréal.

In the workshop we set out to:

  • Discuss our approach to public health ethics as well as our work;

  • Present the main ethical issues associated with paternalistic policies and interventions in public health; and

  • Test with the students a draft version of a framework designed to make it easier to think and deliberate in a more nuanced way about the ethical issues raised by paternalistic policies and interventions in public health.
