Workshop - How Can I Choose a Public Health Ethics Framework that Is Suited to My Practical Needs? - CPHA 2016
The Centre's Olivier Bellefleur and Michael Keeling led this workshop at the 2016 Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA's) annual conference in Toronto from June 13-16.
June 2016.  Description. Download   2.0 MB
 .

In this largely discussion-based, 90-minute session, we focused on getting to know public health ethics frameworks.

After identifying what ethics frameworks can help us to do, used two frameworks to guide our analysis of a case involving the prohibition of certain models of e-cigarette in Canada.

These analyses helped to familiarize us with some of the principal features of frameworks (their orientations, methodologies, practical guidance, areas of applicability, the values they highlight, etc.) as a guide for analyzing frameworks more generally.  We suggested that considering a framework's features in this way can help participants to choose one for a given situation in their own practices.
