Learn the key principles and best practices for involving people in research studies in sessions starting January 18, 2017.   

Each of the 10 sessions will feature a different module of the online tutorial for the Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research involving Humans, Second Edition (known as TCPS2).  The media-rich format features interactive exercises and multi-disciplinary examples. We will keep things informal, leaving space for questions and group discussion.
These sessions are an opportunity for UCN researchers who plan to involve people in their research studies to work toward obtaining their certificate of completion for the tutorial.   


More generally, the sessions are open to anyone interested in issues around safeguarding the rights of human participants in research projects.  All are welcome!
