12pm-4pm D2 Richmond Building
This session was delivered by Professor Robert Parkin, Dr Clare Beckett-Wrighton & Dr Martin Brinkworth.
It signals the beginning of my work as part of the institutions Ethics Committee and feels like a natural addition to my work, given my experience of ethical practice and my commitment to the best standards of ethics in research.
The session was interactive and included some stimulating and fascinating case study discussions to help ethics reviewers think about the various ways research requires careful attention to detail. This was in addition to being able to give time to big questions, such as ‘is there research which simply shouldn’t be conducted?’
It also helped me to begin some of my Vitae RDF deficits in research, namely my skills in research management.
