The Centre’s Olivier Bellefleur and Michael Keeling presented on public health ethics and surveillance at the Public Health Infrastructure Steering Committee of the Pan-Canadian Public Health Network on January 30, 2018.
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.
