Call for Expressions of Interest: Community Health Ethics Board Working Group

Dear Members,

The Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA®) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from motivated and enthusiastic members of the health promotion sector with experience in research and ethics in practice to join the Community Health Ethics Board (CHEB) Working Group.

AHPA is committed to ethical practice - supporting culturally informed, participatory, respectful, and safe practice. Understanding and applying ethics in practice is a core competency for health promotion practitioners.

The CHEB Working Group is a time-limited working group of the AHPA Board of Directors supported by staff from Curtin University. Its role and function is to develop a business case for a CHEB model which will build understanding of ethics for health promotion practice and the development of ethically informed practices within a range of organisations.

This is an exciting opportunity to work with like-minded health promotion practitioners and researchers to ensure that ethics in practice is considered at every step of the planning, implementation and evaluation program cycle to ensure the safety and wellbeing of individuals and communities, for better community health outcomes.

It is expected that you will join the Working Group for a tenure of 12 months, and actively participate in telephone or face-to-face meetings and other activities as the project progresses.
