Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
I do hope you are doing fine. I would like to share with you the progress of our activity.
In mid of June, we organised a haft day Ethics workshop for ethical committee (EC) members from hospitals and institutions in Hochiminh City. The most successful section was a one-hour discussion on "challenges that members are facing during their work".
Participants focused their dilemma between multiple roles: being research’s management, hospital’s management and principles for ethical review. One interesting debate was about whether or not the board should separate their roles in reviewing scientific and ethical aspects of the research study.
Another interesting topic is “EC’s roles in assessing and managing Protocol violation and Deviation” led by Ms Evelyne. This section was a combination of basic definition and pragmatic example which attracted the attention of all participants.
At the end of the workshop, some EC's members disclosed that this is a right forum for them to learn and share their challenges and they would like to have more of this in the future. Other members expressed that they would be happy if we could provide further training, cooperative opportunities (for them to work together). The workshop ending by many questions and thoughts in the mind of participants and promising future cooperations.
