Description:

During this symposium, panelists engaged participants in a discussion of:

  • The state of public health (PH) ethics education in Canadian university PH schools and programs;
  • The PH ethics resources used by today's practitioners in Canada, and what resources or training might be needed; and
  • The essential PH ethics skills for PH professionals and how to foster those.

After presenting empirical results drawn from two 2017 pan-Canadian surveys, panelists led a collective discussion of the survey findings and on the most promising solutions to support ethical decision-making in PH. The goal was to assess and identify how we can collectively support the continuing education of current professionals and the teaching of PH ethics to future researchers and PH professionals.

The symposium took place on Tuesday May 29.
