Breakthroughs in health sciences offer tremendous hope to patients and the public, but
with progress emerge new legal and ethical challenges. This position allows a scholar to
join the vibrant and growing Centre for Health Law, Policy and Ethics at the University of
Ottawa for four months. Housed in the Faculty of Law, the Centre is a hub for research
across disciplines on cutting edge problems. It is the largest of its kind in Canada and is
ideally located in the nation’s capital to allow the mobilization of new ideas and evidence
to affect national and international policy.
The Chairholder will benefit from exchanges with Centre members from Law, Social
Sciences, Sciences, Arts, Health Sciences, Management, and Medicine. Members work
on a broad range of issues, including but not limited to mental health law and policy;
medical aid in dying as recently legalized by the Supreme Court of Canada; the impact
and regulation of new technologies; innovative approaches to health governance; and
issues stemming from an aging population such as funding and regulation of long-term
care, advance directives, and capacity and consent. The Chairholder will also have the
opportunity to network with leading policy makers, jurists, and stakeholders.
