National Health Ethics Week 2022

November 7-12, 2022

During the week of November 7-12, 2022, NSHEN will be participating in National Health Ethics Week 2022

We will be highlighting our most popular ethics items from the past couple years. Each day will feature a different resource, so be sure to check daily!


What is Health Ethics Week?

An event that is in rapid expansion, the annual National Health Ethics Week is a time Canadian health institutions, schools and universities, research and clinical ethics committees, healthcare professionals, community organizations, businesses, and members of the general public set aside to host and take part in educational events that explore health ethics that affect Canadians.

The goal of National Health Ethics Week is specifically to:

  • Encourage the planning and organising of events across the country to raise awareness and promote dialogue about healthcare and research ethics issues facing our communities;
  • Facilitate networking between individuals interested in clinical and research ethics;
  • Provide greater visibility for the services offered by the Canadian research and clinical ethics community, including research ethics boards and clinical ethics committees;
  • Offer an opportunity for Canadians to get engaged in discussions that have important policy-making implications in the health arena.

By taking part in the National Health Ethics Week, you are showing a commitment to ethical decision-making and will be helping to open lines of communication with others in your community. We are pleased that you will be joining us for Canada’s next National Health Ethics Week!
