Ethics Training Day | Dealing with Vulnerability

Ethics Training Day: Dealing with Vulnerability | 11 October 2017

This is the sixth year that Bond University will host this free event for ethics committee members from across the region. This year the focus will be on dealing with vulnerability in research participants.

Although the training day is aimed at ethics committee members, it will provide invaluable insights for Bond University staff and students whose research involves vulnerable participants.
