International Research: Applying Ethical Principles and Research Guidelines in Global Settings, a webinar to be held on Wednesday, February 16, 2011, from 1:00 to 2:30 PM ET, will focus on the following topics:
- Working with IRBs: Challenges of applying the terms of your federalwide assurance (FWA) in international research settings and of teaching US IRBs about global research contexts.
- Obtaining informed consent: Meeting the ethical goals of consent requirements in settings with oral rather than written traditions; navigating gender and power relationships in consent authority; honoring commitments to communities; and developing strategies for community engagement.
- Evaluating risks and benefits in variable risk environments: Do researchers have a duty to minimize the non-research related risks of daily life? What are researchers’ obligations to address study participants’ non-study-related medical conditions?
- Ensuring equitable distribution of research findings: What are researchers’ obligations to the participants?
The target audience for this webinar includes IRB chairs, administrators, staff, and members, institutional officials, and others engaged with HRPPs/IRBs, who are involved in research in global settings.
Please RSVP to Research Integrity or 852-2454 by noon February 15th.
