Critical Health Promotion Series, Webinar 1: Critical health promotion – ethical, ecological practice
4pm-5:30pm AEDT 18th November, 2020
Presented by Associate Professor Jane Taylor (University of the Sunshine Coast) and Associate Professor Lily O’Hara (Qatar University), this webinar aimed to facilitate conversation on critical health promotion practice using a set of 12 values and principles incorporated in the Red Lotus Critical Health Promotion Model as a foundation for critical practice.
Presenters shared their recent scholarly work in critical health promotion including the continuum of 12 health promotion values and principles which at one end characterise critical health promotion practices and at the other end selective health promotion practices. They demonstrated how this values and principles continuum can be used as a heuristic to reflect on and critique health promotion practice and determine the extent to which the practice aligns more with critical or selective approaches.
Webinar participants were invited to use the health promotion values and principles continuum heuristic to reflect on their own practice or that of their organisation as a basis for further conversation in webinar two in the series.

Critical Health Promotion Series, Webinar 2: Critical health promotion – reflecting on your practice
4-5:30pm AEDT 2nd December, 2020
Presented by Associate Professor Jane Taylor (University of the Sunshine Coast) and Associate Professor Lily O’Hara (Qatar University), webinar two built on the critical health promotion conversation from webinar one. Participants were invited to share their experiences of using the health promotion values and principles heuristic to reflect on their own and/or their organisation’s current practice to determine the extent to which the practice aligns more with critical or selective approaches. As a group, participants were guided though a conversation to explore the tensions, insights and strategies to move health promotion practice towards a more critical approach.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Public Health Ethics Training Materials is a training manual to be used as a tool to strengthen public health ethics capacity at the local level. The manual includes an introduction to public health ethics, relevant case studies, suggestions for integrating ethics into health departments, and additional resources.
The Global Health Training Centre has developed the Research Ethics Online Training which is adapted from an eLearning course and resource package by the World Health Organization (WHO) for use by internal staff. WHO has very kindly granted permission for the adaption of this resource in an accessible format and platform.
Online Course – An Introduction to Public Health Ethics
Decision making in public health can be influenced by a number of factors including scientific evidence, budgetary opportunities and limitations, institutional norms, and ethical considerations, among other things. Bringing an ethical lens into practice is important for ensuring that the well-being of others (whether individuals or populations) is taken into account when policies, programs and other activities are developed to improve the health of populations. The purpose of this online course is to help you to develop your skills in perceiving and addressing ethical issues that might arise in public health practice in order to make more ethically-informed decisions.
