Right from Wrong: Clinical Research Ethics in Practice

15/09/2017 13:30

When conducting clinical research we must be aware of the laws and regulations that control our actions, but equally, we must be aware of the ethics of research. Breaches of ethics have in the past led to the formulation of many of the regulations that now control research. But, what makes something right or wrong? How are ethical decisions made? What do Research Ethics Committees think about when evaluating a project? This half-day workshop will explore these questions and give participants an opportunity to review their own research practices. The workshop will consist of a series of short, interactive lectures, interspersed with practical exercises and structured discussion sessions. After the workshop each participant will:

  • be familiar with different moral frameworks that drive ethical decision making
  • appreciate the impact of past breaches of research ethics on the development of modern research regulation
  • be familiar with modern research ethics guidelines
  • understand the interaction between the law and ethics
  • understand the workings of a Research Ethics Committee
