Ethics in Research: A Science Lifecycle Approach

Sunday, 19 April, 2015 - 14:00 to 15:00

Ethics in the health research endeavour is more than a Research Ethics Board review. In fact, focusing on the review can sometimes cloud other important issues where ethics play a major role (from deciding the research agenda, methodology, and partners, up to IP, publication, commercialization, etc).

Using of a case study approach, this session will apply an ethics framework analysis tool designed to:
• Help develop skills and knowledge to identify and address the ethical issues inherent in research; and
• Understand the importance of ethics in ensuring not only the safety and well-being of participants involved in health research but also in the research endeavor as a whole.
