Course Background

This intensive course is conducted as a five day retreat and is designed to assist researchers, ethics committee members and others involved in the conduct and assessment of research to understand and clarify the issues arising in relation to research of all kinds involving human participants. It provides an opportunity for members of the research and research ethics communities to come together to discuss the issues they face and share their experiences.

The course aims to give registrants an appreciation of the philosophical and ethical issues underlying research involving human participants, an understanding of the issues relating to different research methodologies and research involving special populations and an ability to appreciate trials.
