Wednesday 9 September, 2:00-4:00pm – UKRIO research integrity webinar: consent

This is the fifth in the series of monthly webinars from the UK Research Integrity Office on research integrity and related issues.

The focus of this webinar is consent. Informed consent is an essential element of research integrity and one of the founding principles of research ethics. It is a communication process between the researcher and the research participant. For a human participant to voluntarily enter research they must have the full information about what it means for them to take part. Only then can they give consent before they enter the research. The speakers will discuss best practice in obtaining consent in different research disciplines.
