Pandemics, public health and data ethics



This 60-minute workshop will be facilitated by Bucks HSC Ventures and delivered by Jessica Morley from Oxford University DataLab.

Medical ethics and data ethics both commonly focus on the principles of: autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence and justice. These are all important principles worthy of protection, but they are primarily intended to protect an individual from harms from another individual or organisation. When a group is threatened by a potential harm, as in the case of threats to public health, the extent to which these principles can and should be the guiding principles becomes questionable. This talk will consider this complexity, and the implications for digital health innovators.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.

Who should attend?

People who are working in the area of medical devices/digital health solutions, including:

  • clinicians
  • science students
  • innovators
  • start-ups
  • SMEs

This is part of a series of online events running through to the end of July hosted by Bucks HSC Ventures which works directly with health and social care providers to ensure new business ideas meet their needs. By combining expertise, facilities and networks, it also introduces these innovations to market.

The programme is a collaboration between the Oxford AHSN, Bucks New University, Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Buckinghamshire County Council. It is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
