Resources for Research Ethics Education0

“The subject of this document is research ethics. The focus of “research ethics” is a very practical one: How should we as researchers act? Unfortunately, the choices we face are not always clear. And even those cases that are clear may at times be better characterized as “right vs. right” rather than “right vs. wrong,” For these reasons, our obligation is not necessarily to make the right decisions, but to strive to make the best possible decisions. In this context, “ethics” should not be confused with ethical theory, morality, and/or simply following the rules.

“As you read this document, please consider it only a starting point. You are encouraged to raise questions and initiate discussion about these issues with your teachers, your mentors, your peers, or your students or trainees. These discussions are the foundation for promoting awareness and understanding of the highest standards of responsible conduct of research.”

Volume I: Report and Recommendations of the National Bioethics Advisory Commission.

“In this report, the National Bioethics Advisory Commission (NBAC) considers how ethically acceptable research can be conducted with human subjects who suffer from mental disorders that may affect their decisionmaking capacity; whether, in this context, additional protections are needed; and, if so, what they should be and how they should be implemented. In addition, this report provides an opportunity for investigators, Institutional Review Board (IRB) members, persons with mental disorders and their families, and the general public to become better informed about the importance of such research and what we believe are the appropriate protections for the human subjects involved.”

Online training resource produced and hosted by Global Health Training Centre based upon an e-Learning course and resource package designed and produced by the World Health Organization (WHO) for use by internal staff.

“Research is a vital ingredient for improved global health and scientifically sound and ethically appropriate research is especially important in resource-poor settings where the need for locally applicable research findings is so great. Therefore the WHO has very kindly granted permission for the adaption of this resource in a format and platform that is accessible to all.
