Abigail Wilkinson · October 30, 2018

How could the ethics review process facilitate excellent engagement? Rooted in ethics guidelines, this course provides a condensed overview of core features and practices of ‘engaged’ clinical trials, and how these can be supported in ethics review. It is focused on HIV but relevant to other infectious diseases.

What an expert has to say

“The course on Strengthening Engagement Through Ethics Review is a “must do” for any REC members, … investigators … as well as for any other stakeholders with an interest in HIV prevention research… The course addresses why it is important to engage, who needs to be engaged, how can they be engaged, how can researchers plan for engaging stakeholders, and ultimately how can RECs assist in strengthening stakeholder engagement … The course uses an interactive approach and includes cases, scenarios and thought-provoking questions… I highly recommend the course to investigators, new and existing members of research ethics committees, advocates, community advisory board members and anyone with an interest in HIV prevention research.” Paul Ndebele PhD, Senior Research Regulatory Specialist, Milken Institute School of Public Health, George Washington University
