Ethical issues in designing suicide prevention studies: Translating recommendations into good practices

 Registration is closed for this event
Webinar via Online Meeting

Over the last two years our team at the Centre for Mental health, The University of Melbourne, has conducted a series of studies regarding ethical issues in suicide research. These included studies involving (Australian and international) researchers, representatives of human research ethics committees, and people with lived experience of suicide. The most recent study comprised an expert consensus study regarding ethical issues to consider in designing suicide prevention studies. The webinar will be building on this research and aims to explore how the recommendations from the consensus study can be implemented and used in practice.

The webinar will start with a brief overview of the studies conducted, followed by a panel discussion led by a facilitator/moderator. The panel will include five panel members encompassing people with different backgrounds/profiles (see below). During the panel discussions, delegates will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panel in an online chat box.
