Presentations and webinars
In this webinar we discussed how the NCCHPP’s online course in public health ethics was developed and then we offered an overview of its content. Then in order to illustrate its relevance and utility for the public health sector, a health professional discussed the ethical challenges she has faced in professional practice, as well as her experience in taking the NCCHPP’s online course.
Webinar – How Can We (and Why Should We) Analyze the Ethics of Paternalistic Policies in Public Health?
The purpose of this webinar was to equip public health actors to conduct a critical and nuanced ethical analysis of public health policies or population-based interventions accused or suspected of being paternalistic.
This webinar, co-hosted by the National Collaborating Centres for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) and Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) was organized for the 10th anniversary of the death of Brian Sinclair, an Anishinaabe man who died after waiting for treatment at Winnipeg’s Health Sciences Centre Emergency Room for 34 hours. This was an opportunity to discuss the story of Brian Sinclair in the context of the history of the city of Winnipeg, and the history of health care in the province of Manitoba, and to critically examine anti-Indigenous racism.
The Centre presented a 3-hour session introducing public health ethics at the University of Waterloo’s School of Public Health and Health Systems. In preparation for this session, we updated and reformulated much of the introductory material that we have developed over the last five years.
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.
