Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
Because of delays in beginning participant recruitment in our bursary project, we'd missed two trials in our sampling framework as they had completed their studies at the time we began participant enrollment and we needed to replace them with a new trial. That required protocol amendment to include a new trial and we've just received the ethics approval this week.

I’m grateful to the 2015 Summer school participants for the useful comments received about my poster presentation. The…Continue
