Revis(it)ing the public health code of ethics

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
In 2002, APHA adopted the “Principles of the Ethical Practice of Public Health” as a code of ethics (PH Code of Ethics) to guide the work of public health professionals. Funded by the CDC and PHLS, the Code was developed by the Center for Health Leadership & Practice, Public Health Institute, members of the original PHLS Ethics Work Group, and the PHLS standing committee on Public Health Ethics. It has been a little over ten years since the PH Code of Ethics was widely distributed to influence practice and policy in public health and for use in the education and training of public health professionals. In this session presentations will include case studies, critiques, reflections and expansions of the PH Code of Ethics that reflect its use over the past decade and their relevance at the growing edges of ethical practice across public health in all its disciplines.
