The focus of research ethics oversight tends to be on the properties of an individual protocol. However, some of the core judgments in ethics review — such as a study’s social and scientific value require that a protocol be evaluated in the context of the accumulating body of evidence and other ongoing research activities.
This month, presenters will demonstrate some new approaches for systematically visualizing data on clinical trials, and discuss ways in which these approaches may help research ethics committees to assess the value of a proposed study.
