Penn Medicine, Research in Global Settings, 11/8/2021 8:00:00 AM - 11/8/2024 11:00:00 PM, Intended for researchers and those involved in research oversight, this activity provides an overview of ethical principles of biomedical research in global settings, with a special emphasis on research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We will begin with an 8-principle framework for conducting ethical research, then examine areas requiring special attention, including:
- Determining ethical standards of care for the control arm of trials.
- Adapting the informed consent process to various cultural contexts.
- Providing ancillary care for research participants.
- Researchers’ post-trial obligations to research participants and their communities.
