Drop-in sessions for questions on ethics applications

Registrations are now open for the drop-in zoom sessions for specific questions on ethics applications. These drop-in sessions are aimed at all UQ staff and students who are preparing an ethics application. Timely approval of applications depends on providing the information needed by the ethics committee to reach a consensus decision. In these zoom sessions you can bring your questions and we will give you advice on what information to include in your ethics application.

Examples of areas that could be addressed in these sessions are: data collection procedures and instruments, participants, risk assessment, etc.

Customised training

Human Ethics also coordinate and deliver customised training packages for UQ’s schools and institutes. These training packages are developed to assist researchers to understand their responsibilities relating to ethical conduct and explain UQ’s Human Ethics application and review processes. The information presented in these training sessions can be tailored to your school/institute’s research areas. We also offer drop-in sessions where researchers can talk to one of the officers at Research Ethics about ethics questions specific to their research. Please contact our Human Ethics Coordinators to discuss training options for your Faculty/School/Institute.
