Virtual workshop: 3-4 December 2020
Australasian Assn of Bioethics & Health Law
This free virtual workshop will scrutinise COVID-19 from the perspectives of research ethics, public health ethics, public health law, and policy. Six months or so into the pandemic, we can see where bioethics was able to correctly predict and address certain challenges in the 10-15 years leading up to COVID-19 (e.g., the ethics of just and legitimate isolation), while being unable to foresee other issues (e.g., the ill-effects of promoting pre-peer reviewed science). The successes and failures to imagine the challenges in a pandemic brings into sharp relief the way that knowledge and evidence effects our ability to predict issues and help resolve them during the midst of a pandemic.
Four plenaries, plus work-in-progress presentations on COVID-19 research ethics, public health ethics, public health law, and policy.
