This document presents a preliminary, graphic summary of results from a survey of university directors of population and public health programs, or professors responsible for ethics teaching, within population and public health schools or programs in Canadian universities on the subject of teaching ethics in public health in their institutions.

The goal was to add to current knowledge of the extent to which public health ethics figures into postsecondary population and public health training in Canada, and if so, what that entails. In particular, we wanted to learn about the use of ethics resources, what is taught, who is teaching, and how. We also set out to identify barriers and opportunities for implementing ethics training programs for public health.

This is a picture that we want to share as part of a collective effort to support ethics in public health practice.

A second survey focused on the practices and needs of Canadian public health practitioners with regard to public health ethics. It was led by the NCCHPP with the help of graduate students from the Université de Montréal. More information about the second survey is available here. .
