On February 23, 2017, Olivier Bellefleur and Michael Keeling were invited to facilitate a three-hour workshop in the course Bioéthique et santé publique (Bioethics and public health) offered to postgraduate students at the Université de Montréal.

In the workshop we set out to:

  • Discuss our approach to public health ethics as well as our work;

  • Present the main ethical issues associated with paternalistic policies and interventions in public health; and

  • Test with the students a draft version of a framework designed to make it easier to think and deliberate in a more nuanced way about the ethical issues raised by paternalistic policies and interventions in public health.

A revised version of the framework will be tested on March 31, 2017, during a 90-minute workshop at The Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC). For more information: http://www.ncchpp.ca/128/presentations.ccnpps?id_article=1631
