4061.0 Public Health and Social Justice

Tuesday, November 9, 2010: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Founded on the principle and ethical foundation of justice, public health practice is based on promoting care for populations in a socially just and humane manner. This session analyzes the challenges of such care including examination of frameworks to meet the challenges inherent in implementing principals of justice. Topics covered include "othering" and trends focusing on individual "market justice" rather than social justice.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify the relationships between public health and social justice. 2. Describe challenges impacting social justice principles in public health nursing practice. 3. Differentiate between othering/exclusionary othering and the impact on social justice in public health.
