February 2018.  Description. PPT  869 K..
.


In this presentation we focused on:

  • What is public health (PH) surveillance?

  • What is PH ethics?

  • PH ethics: frameworks

  • PH ethics and surveillance: what ethical issues arise when we apply ethical thinking to PH surveillance policies / programs / systems

This introduction set the stage for work with a case study on the ethics of surveillance in the context of the work around the Blueprint for a Federated System for Public Health Surveillance in Canada.
