Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes

Project update: Ethical concerns over the analysis and storage of excised human tissue

We work across 2 hospitals in Kwa-Zulu Natal to better understand the HIV and TB co epidemic at the site of infection. In interactions with surgeons several questions were raised about the research and surgical consent process has on each other and a patient’s willingness to consent to these processes.  This project is therefore focused around a surgical health care worker’s perspective of the consent process. We have applied to our local ethics committee for approval to start this study at both hospitals and received some feedback. Currently I am working on designing the questionnaire and have also just started drafting a write up for the project.

Dear Khadija,
