Constructive Voices: Implementing the 2018 updates to the National Statement and Australian Code
Get answers to your questions and hear essential implementation tips
The 2018 changes to the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research and the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research are significant. However, identifying and meeting new requirements by their respective due dates – Australian Code (30 June 2019) and National Statement (31 December 2018) – can seem daunting. In addition, a focus just on compliance may make it harder to take advantage of the opportunities for constructive changes to policies and processes that might enhance ethical conduct and responsible research practice.
Your research office staff, HREC Chairs and members, Research Ethics Advisers/Research Integrity Advisers and research community may have ideas for implementing the two documents, but are they sound and how will they compare to better practices elsewhere in the Australian sector?
In November 2018, AHRECS is hosting two panel discussions to help answer those questions and consider how best to implement changes.\
Australian Code panel discussion: 8 November at 14:30 (ADST)
National Statement panel discussion: 22 November at 14:30 (ADST)
The three-person panel discussions will be moderated by Mark Israel (Australian Code discussion) and Colin Thomson (National Statement discussion), will include senior nominees of the NHMRC and experienced HREC Chairs/research office staff (the final panel members will be confirmed in October).
People considering attending are asked to send a blank email to:
Attendees are invited to provide in advance the questions they would like discussed by the panel and there will be facility to type questions to the panel.
The events will use Zoom’s webinar function (which attendees will need to install on their computer/device prior to the event) and will be recorded. Attending the webinars is free, and a copy of the recordings will be available from the AHRECS Subscribers’ area.
Please send any questions about these events to email@example.com.
