MSPGH Seminar: 22nd April 2015 – In the trenches with the HEAG – and beyond

12.30-1.30pm, Wed 22nd April 2015
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Professor Lynn Gillam, Melbourne School of Population & Global Health; and Chair, The University of Melbourne central Human Research Ethics Committee

The School’s Human Ethics Advisory Group (HEAG) is one of 24 HEAGs across the University which work in the front line of the University’s Human Ethics review process.  It’s not always a fun job, but someone very definitely has to do it – or research would grind to a halt. In this presentation, I will discuss how the whole human ethics review process works, the role of our HEAG in that, what some of the known obstacles and irritations are, and how we can work collaboratively to make things work as smoothly as possible.  In particular, I will discuss the issue of review of research design and methodology and what that has to do with ethics.  This presentation draws from the recent review of the School’s HEAG, which I conducted at Prof Terry Nolan’s request.
