Queen's students and researchers are now able to take an online tutorial about the practical application of Canada's national standard of ethics for research involving human participants: The Tri-Council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (TCPS2). The Course in Human research Participant Protection (CORE) is intended for a wide audience including research administrators and educators, graduate students, research assistants, and active investigators. Featuring real examples of ethics dilemmas in research situations, radio and television interviews with researchers and participants, and interactive exercises. CORE is a practical, applied approach to developing a culture of research ethics.
This tutorial will become a mandatory course (SGS804) for all graduate students engaging in research involving human participants. All students who complete the course now will see it added to their transcript and will be able to print a certificate for their records and for inclusion in their ethics review application.
