Research Ethics
Due to increasing levels of public scrutiny and desire for transparency, the medical research field will face enormous challenges and questions as it attempts to address public demands for accountability. This session will focus on the relationship and role of ethics in medical research, including clinical drug trials, medical devices, and research surveillance. The participants in this session will critically examine the role of institutional review boards, ethical impact statements, drug monitoring systems, drug research databases, and other contemporary aspects of systematic medical research.
Learning Objectives: 1. Discuss various issues and problems related to appropriate identification and ensuring ethical compliance within the research and public health context. 2. Present information, data, trends, and best practices from experts in the field of research ethics.
