Objectives:

This course is mainly for masters', doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. The course covers standard practice and recent changes in universities' ethics relating to research that investigates people and their data. The course applies, for example, to the healthcare disciplines, to natural and social sciences, education and welfare services, humanities, law and media studies. Ethics standards apply very generally across many topics, methods and disciplines of research. This course uses several health research examples, because the ethics questions tend to stand out clearly in health research. Course participants working in other disciplines are invited to consider how the same questions apply to their own research.
