Webcast (2 of 4):
Ethics in Research: A Scientific Lifecycle Approach

About the Webcast:

This session introduces investigators to ethical issues that might arise at each step in the research life cycle. The research life cycle is inspired by Ian Graham’s Knowledge to Action or KTA cycle, and depicts the process of both knowledge generation and knowledge translation, as well as the infinite and iterative feedback between these two processes. Within this framework, the junctures for ethical consideration are presented along the cycle. (Originally aired Aug. 21, 2014.)
