Past and Future Ethical Values Learned from the Covid Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has led all levels of government and our healthcare system to take unprecedented measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and minimize illness. This presentation  integrates a science and ethics based approach to examine the difficult ethical decisions about vaccines,  curtailment of individual freedoms, and closing of public spaces. The objective of this course is to enable decision makers to identify competing values and interests, weigh relevant considerations, identify options and make well-considered and justifiable decisions.
