Webinar: Ethical issues

WEBINAR: Ethical issues in designing suicide prevention studies

Over the last two years the Centre for Mental Health at 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.

Most recently, they comprised an expert consensus study regarding ethical issues to consider in designing suicide prevention studies. Results of these studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals, including open access.

The webinar will build on this research, exploring how the recommendations from the consensus study can be implemented and used in practice. The panellists will explore these questions:

-What is useful about the ethics recommendations/guidelines and how can they be used in your work?

-What do you or the sector need to support the implementation of the ethics guidelines?

The aim of the webinar is to increase the use of the available recommendations/guidelines on ethical issues in suicide research.

Delegates will have the opportunity to react and submit questions to the panel
