In this webinar, co-presented by the NCCHPP and the National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT), we discussed how the NCCHPP’s free 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. This webinar was held on January 27, 2021.
