Ethics is more than just one part of Clinical Research. Ethics pervade every aspect of a trial, from the rationale in the first place through to the maintenance of data and its eventual destruction years after the publication of results. Ethical issues arise in the randomisation of subjects, the choice of outcome, the collection of data, access to that data, the analysis of the data, the reporting of results and the monitoring of the safety of participants. No Clinical Research can be conducted without a thorough and overarching ethical view of all that occurs.
Topics covered include:
Two assignments each of 2000 words (100%). Students will review an ethics proposal, identifying major concerns and problems within that proposal. Students will prepare an ethics application for a project within their workplace or other appropriate setting, detailing all major ethical issues that arise and their management.
