During this workshop, participants considered some of the whats, whys and hows of practical ethics for public health practitioners. The goal was to help participants identify and address ethical issues in their sectors and examples from various public health sectors were used throughout. The field of ethics is vast, and rather than selecting one approach over another, we considered how different theories, approaches, principles and frameworks in public health ethics can have different implications.

Below, you will find the PowerPoint developed for the workshop. We have also included handouts were used during small group discussions. Each of these provides a summary of an ethics framework for public health as well as a description of a case. 

This workshop, organized by the NCCHPP, took place in Toronto on March 27, 2015, during the Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC).
