    Topic: Equity in Healthcare


    Balancing Values When Addressing Inequities in Cancer Healthcare

    Presented by:

    Dr. Marika Warren, PhD
    Assistant Professor, Dalhousie Department of Bioethics and Network Ethicist for the Nova Scotia Health Ethics Network

    Marika has a longstanding interest in the intersection of values and science and in how we translate values into practice, alongside a strong commitment to social justice.  Marika’s current work focuses on developing innovative ways to ensure that ethical commitments and values are reflected in healthcare practice, supporting providers in the challenging work of closing gaps that sometimes arise between how we believe we should behave and how we actually do act.  Areas of particular interest include addressing stigma, promoting equity, and supporting decision making.  Current projects include work on a public health ethics framework, policy regarding human milk sharing, medical assistance in dying, and simulating ethics consultations.

    Learners will be able to:

    • Describe the relationship between ethics and equity
    • Identify the values that are often invoked when addressing inequities in cancer healthcare
    • Describe a process for balancing relevant values when working to address inequities in cancer healthcare
    • Apply a process for balancing values to a case involving inequity in cancer healthcare
