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!
