The conference will take place virtually April 20 – 22, 2022.
Our conference program will be a continuation of our work and efforts to highlight equity, diversity and inclusion considerations in the ethical conduct, review and oversight of human research and research ethics practice.
Recognizing that research ethics and research ethics practice are a shared accountability held by institutions, funders, researchers, research ethics boards and administrators who are jointly accountable to the public to develop, administer and engage in ethical research practices our conference will engage a wide audience including research ethics board members and administrators, researchers, funders, policy-makers and research participants.
Conference attendees will acquire new skills through a combination of didactic, interactive and discussion-based learning to enhance their work performance and experiences, build capacity with the various research ethics frameworks (e.g. TCPS 2 2018, applicable policies and regulations); and most importantly, provide tools, examples and resources for the practical and ethical application of this knowledge.
Our conference program will highlight equity, diversity and inclusion considerations which align with and to the core principles of the TCPS 2, with the intent of showcasing and enabling advancements in research ethics practice, including providing opportunities for innovative approaches to research ethics review, conduct and practice, and promoting ethical research that is relevant with the times.
Our conference will be delivered through a variety of virtual session formats including webcast, webinar, video conference and pre-recorded video to facilitate optimal attendee engagement and content accessibility. We will keep the presentations short, and plan to include poster presentations, more extended breakout sessions, and a variety of hands-on workshop sessions.
