For a few months now, the kindly editor of Yourprof (Michael Valerio) has been asking me to check out his website. Yourprof is in the business of commissioning learned folks to talk about their fields of expertise. Michael asked some of the most experienced people in research ethics to explain some of the challenges of conducting health-related research around the world, particularly in resource-poor settings. They go beyond the standard questions about informed consent to issues about community engagement, the impact of culture, priority setting in health research and the growth of private health research institutions.
Being still neck-deep in work for the moment, I have not been able to watch them all yet. I have promised Michael to write a review when I finally do. But you don't have to wait for me to get my act together. The link to the list of all talks on Yourprof is here
; just scroll down to the global research ethics talks.
