DESCRIPTION

Social and behavioral research can provide data to help bring services to especially vulnerable populations, such as refugees. However, it is essential that this research does not cause harm in the process. To do so, it is important that research is designed and conducted in a manner that is sensitive to its potential ethical pitfalls. Accordingly, this webinar will:

  1. describe the emergence of a formal approach to research ethics;
  2. explain ethical principles for research;
  3. discuss selected ethical considerations in the design and conduct of social and behavioral research; and
  4. outline pillars of protection for research participants.

PRESENTER

The Webinar is presented by Dr. Jeremy Sugarman, MD, MPH, MA, who is the Harvey M. Meyerhoff Professor of Bioethics and Medicine at the Berman Institute of Bioethics and School of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University.
