|Description:||Patient Oriented Research : Challenges and Opportunities|
Clinical Research, one of CIHR’s four pillars, includes everything from Case reports to Randomized Clinical Trails (RCTs). Patient Oriented Research includes all types that have a measurable outcome, which can benefit a patient. RCTs, primarily funded by the pharmaceutical industry, are a time-honoured method to assess the efficacy and adverse effects of new drugs or devices. They allow patients to access cutting edge treatment. Canada and particularly Western Canada have suffered a decline in RCTs. The Saskatoon Centre for Patient Oriented Research aims to reverse this decline.
Ethical Conduct of Research: Where and How it Fits
Clinical research (should) can only occur when all the central tenants of ethics have been met. In Canada experimentation employing humans follows the guidance outlined by the tri-council funding agencies and stated within the TCSPS2 Guidance document. This presentation will introduce you to the central tenants of conducting ethical human research and demonstrate how and where this fi ts within the overall processes of human experimentation.
