Public Health Ethics Workshops with Ontario Public Health Units
The NCCHPP will be leading two workshops in March as part of our role in the Public Health Training for Equitable Systems Change (PHESC) Project, led by the Dalla Lana School for Public Health at the University of Toronto.
March 2019. Description.
.

On March 21st and 25th we will lead half-day workshops at Leeds-Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (Brockville, Ontario) and at Huron County Health Unit (Clinton, Ontario).

(Note: Huron County's neighbours from Perth District Health Unit are also invited to join them on March 25th. Please send us a note for details and contact information: michael.keeling@inspq.qc.ca)

Our principal goal is to help make ethical thinking part of everyday practice, whether in program development, decision making or engaging with the public.

By participating in these workshops, participants will add to their capacity to:

  • Describe different ways of looking at the field of public health ethics and relate these to the aims, practices and policies of public health.
  • Apply ethical concepts, frameworks, values and principles, in order to identify ethical issues that arise in case studies, policies, programs, or professional practice.
  • Deliberate to bring ethical values into play to inform decisions about a policy, program or course of action.

The objective of the PHESC project is to help improve the knowledge, skills and performance of Ontario's public health workforce. To this end, a number of training resources and events are being developed. To learn more about the PHESC project, please consult the project website: http://phesc.ca/
