April 2017. Description. PPT  1.1 MB
.

This workshop, organized by the NCCHPP, took place in Toronto on March 31, 2017, during the Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC).

In this interactive workshop, we discussed an accessible way of analyzing paternalism in public health in order to understand it, to contextualize the issues it raises, and to help participants to balance paternalism among other issues and values. This approach allowed participants to approach paternalism with a sufficient degree of nuance so as to go (or to lead others) far beyond all-or-nothing thinking.

After discussing why paternalistic policies and interventions are so attractive in public health as well as why we have to be so cautious about using them, we invited participants to test out a new framework by applying it to a case. This framework was designed to help practitioners and decision makers to navigate the ethical issues arising from paternalistic policies and interventions as an aid to deciding what to do.
