The University of Minnesota’s Medical Research Mess – New York Times (Carl Elliot 2015)0

Posted by Admin in on May 28, 2015
 

“MINNEAPOLIS — IF you want to see just how long an academic institution can tolerate a string of slow, festering research scandals, let me invite you to the University of Minnesota, where I teach medical ethics.

“Over the past 25 years, our department of psychiatry has been party to the following disgraces: a felony conviction and a Food and Drug Administration research disqualification for a psychiatrist guilty of fraud in a drug study; the F.D.A. disqualification of another psychiatrist, for enrolling illiterate Hmong refugees in a drug study without their consent; the suspended license of yet another psychiatrist, who was charged with “reckless, if not willful, disregard” for dozens of patients; and, in 2004, the discovery, in a halfway house bathroom, of the near-decapitated corpse of Dan Markingson, a seriously mentally ill young man under an involuntary commitment order who committed suicide after enrolling, over the objections of his mother, in an industry-funded antipsychotic study run by members of the department.”

Griffith University Research Ethics Manual (GUREM)0

Posted by Admin in on May 27, 2015
 

A booklet-based resource manual for researchers and ethics reviewers. Rather than a rulebook the GUREM is a resource for reflective practice in human research. The 46 booklets cover a wide range of topics, such as recruitment, consent, social media in research and the exposure of illegal behaviour. Click here to see a list of the current booklets.

The intended audience for the resource is researchers, ethics reviewers, policy/educational officers and commentators.

Dr Gary Allen is the primary author of the GUREM.

Further information about the GUREM:

1) Web page for the GUREM;
2) A list of the 46 booklets are available upon request;
3) Excerpt of booklets can be provided on request for evaluative purposes; and
4) The consolidated index of the GUREM can be accessed here.

Licenses are available to research institutions to use the GUREM as the foundation of their resource material. The enduring license need only be purchased once for all researchers at that institution.

For five years licensees will receive track change updates of any updates to the GUREM (e.g. arising from the rolling review of the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research and the new national application form). Click here to see information about previous updates to Booklets of the Manual.
