"Social Justice and Professionalism" Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities"

The 2019 APHC Annual Meeting will explore social justice education and practice in the health professions across the U.S. and internationally. While there are many definitions of social justice, it is emphasized as a key value in the 2002 Charter on Medical Professionalism, the 2017 Code of Ethics for Social Work and included within the 2015 Code of Ethics for Nursing. What does our experience with healthcare in the 21st century tell us about successes, failures and opportunities in embracing social justice as a professional value? What is our path moving forward?
