This course aims to deliver training in ethically reviewing research
ethics applications for members of staff who would value refresher
training. Specifically this will identify the key issues on which ethics
reviewers should expect to receive full information; explore what
constitutes appropriate feedback to applicants and provide a forum in
which ethics reviewers from disparate research disciplines can share
their experiences and tips on best practice.

Participants will be able to explore what constitutes appropriate
feedback to applicants, share experiences of ethics reviewing and tips
on best practice.

The course will be a mixture of interactive lecture and group work and
will be split into three main parts:

1. Janet Holt will present: Research Ethics Committees: A Personal
2. Attendees will form small groups to discuss ethics applications and
case studies
3. The final stage will include group feedback and a wider discussion of
applications and case studies.

University of Leeds. Janet chairs the School of Healthcare Research
Ethics Committee and is Chair of the Faculty of Medicine and Health
