CANCELLED Inside the Research Ethics Committee

CANCELLED Inside the Research Ethics Committee

LJMU requires that ALL projects undertaken by staff and students using human subjects as participants receive approval from the University Research Ethics Committee (or a NHS REC). This process helps to ensure the safety, dignity and rights of research participants whilst providing assurance that research is being conducted within an ethical framework. In addition, it protects you and the reputation of the university and can significantly improve your research, leading to more rigorous work and impactful outcomes.

Too often though, the ethical approval process is seen as at best a barrier to be overcome, at worst a hindrance to research progress.

This session gives you the opportunity to act as a research ethics committee. In small groups, you will discuss and debate the ethical considerations relating to research projects and determine what, if any recommendations you would make to the researchers leading the projects.

This session is for you if you want to:

  • understand how ethical review can improve research

  • gain insight into the ethical approval process

  • undertake research using human subjects

Please note: This workshop is not an alternative to the on-line LJMU Research Ethics Training and will not repeat material from it.
