Consent - do you really need to ask? Association of Research Ethics Committees (AREC) Regional Workshop at Durham University
The AREC workshop will consider the concept of informed consent, why it is valued by research ethics committees, how it might be achieved with different participant populations, and whether it is always necessary (or desirable). It is targeted at researchers from all disciplines and aims to increase understanding of and stimulate discussion around this fundamental ethical principle.
The programme features academic speakers from a range of UK institutions, including Durham, and attendance is open to all within (and beyond) the University. It is of particular interest to staff and students conducting research involving human participants as well as those responsible for ethical review.
For the purposes of this workshop all members of Durham University (staff and students) will be eligible for the AREC member rate of £50 for the day including lunch and refreshments. The registration form has now been released for this event.
