Posted by Admin in on May 23, 2015
 

The TGA has brought together a number of essential resources for trial sponsors, institutions, administrators and review bodies. Institutions should decide whether to direct researchers to this site or to produce reference material (see as the GUREM see below) that references the material. Also on this page are TGA forms (such as the CTN/CTX forms and notes on Australia’s implementation of international standards (such as the Guidelines for Good Clinical Practice (CPMP/ICH/135/95)).

The Clinical Ethics Resource0

Posted by Admin in on May 23, 2015
 

“The Clinical Ethics Resource provides an extensive range of resources addressing the ethical and legal issues experienced by those working in clinical environments. Health professionals face challenging issues on a daily basis. This website seeks to offer resources and best practice guidelines to assist with those decisions.

The website is part of a larger study into the practice of clinical ethics in New South Wales, Australia. The aim of the project is to identify what resources are necessary to develop clinical ethics capacity within the New South Wales health system, for example providing clinical ethics committees and/or making clinical ethics training more widely available. This web-based resource is aimed at providing initial support to people who are looking for further information and resources.

Search by topic to access guidelines, legislation, case law and position statements/policies of government authorities and professional bodies. We have also included references to some of the key articles and commentaries on particular topics.

While our focus is on the position in New South Wales our collection of resources comes from all around Australia and the world. If you have additional resources that should be included, please get in touch”.

Research Ethics and Integrity for Social Scientists: Beyond Regulatory Compliance (Books: Mark Israel 2014)0

BOOKS: Israel, Mark. Research Ethics and Integrity for Social Scientists: Beyond Regulatory Compliance. Second Edition edition. London; Thousand Oaks, Calif.: SAGE Publications Ltd, 2014.

“Ethics and integrity in research are increasingly important for social scientists around the world. We are tackling more complex problems in the face of expanding and not always sympathetic regulation. This book surveys the recent developments and debates around researching ethically and with integrity and complying with ethical requirements. The new edition pushes beyond the work of the first edition through updated and extended coverage of issues relating to international, indigenous, interdisciplinary and internet research.

Through case studies and examples drawn from all continents and from across the social science disciplines, the book:

  • demonstrates the practical value of thinking seriously and systematically about ethical conduct in social science research
  • identifies how and why current regulatory regimes have emerged
  • reveals those practices that have contributed to the adversarial relationships between researchers and regulators
  • encourages all parties to develop shared solutions to ethical and regulatory problems.”

The Handbook of Social Research Ethics (Books: Donna Mertens & Pauline E. Ginsberg 2008)0

Posted by Admin in on May 22, 2015
 

BOOK: Mertens DM and Ginsberg PE (eds) (2009) Handbook of Social Research Ethics. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage.

The Handbook of Social Research Ethics is the first comprehensive volume of its kind to offer a deeper understanding of the history, theory, philosophy, andáimplementation of applied social research ethics. Much of the literature surrounding research ethics originates from or focuses on medical or related health science issues involving human subject research. Yet, the intricacies of social research often raises ethical concerns and issues that are unique to or requiring further contextualization to general research ethics topics, guidelines, and practices. This volume brings together eminent, international scholars across the social and behavioral sciences and education to address those ethical issues that arise in the theory and practice of research within the technologically advancing and culturally complex world in which we live. In addition, ethical dilemmas that arise in the relationship between research practice and social justice issues are examined. The guiding themes used throughout the volume include: Defining and exploring the role(s) of ethics in research from a multi-disciplinary perspective; Making explicit the differing ethical emphases entailed by differing research traditions; Locating ethical concerns within research practice; Elucidating how each of the above influences the relationship between good ethical practice and good research practice. This reference is an invaluable resource to graduate students, professors, researchers, and practitioners of various kinds of social and behavioral research.”
