Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Hi All,

I hope this update finds you in good spirit.

We began participant enrollment in May this year and have already completed a few follow ups! Recruitment is ongoing.

Some more good news is that I’d submitted an abstract about the project to the Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference and got accepted for poster presentation! I’m grateful to the 2015 Summer school participants for the useful comments received about my poster presentation. The comments came at the right time and will be used to develop the new poster!

Best Regards.

Hi Neema,

Congratulations on your abstract accepted and the update on enrollment. I m not quite unclear what study you are talking about is that a clinical trial or your own bursary project? May I have more details on that study: the aim, method etc..so we may learn from each other.

A good news, we may see each other at the 1st annual Conference this September!!

Hi Thuy,

Many thanks for your comments. Sorry that I didn't indicate the project, it is the bursary project.

Good to see that you will attend the September Conference!

All the best.

Thanks everyone!
Thuy - the study I'm talking about is the bursary one:) It's a prospective qualitative research that's using IDIs & FGDs. We're exploring challenges faced by staff when getting informed consent in paediatric studies. We're assessing whether guardians really understand the information given to them to make informed decision to participate. We'll also learn from the guardians what they perceive as good practice when we get consent from them for their children to participate in our studies.
