Ethical Issues Arising in Public Health Emergencies (PHEs)

9th September 2020
16:00 - 17:00

Introduction

This webinar examines the ethical issues that have arisen in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. It addresses the following questions:

  1. What are the ethical issues that have arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic? To what extent are these issues specific to patient populations and/or geographical regions? To what extent are they general?
  2. Has pharmaceutical medicine been sufficiently cognisant of these ethical issues? And has it responded in a sufficient manner to the ethical issues?
  3. Do we need to adjust or change our approach to ethics during a PHE?
