Volunteers wanted to help provide oversight of health and social care research

Mon, 17 Aug 2020

Two new members are being sought for the Isle of Man Research and Ethics Committee, the body responsible for reviewing health and social care research projects carried out on the Island.

The Committee’s remit includes reviewing research proposals to formally assess if the research and the processes being used are ethical where they involve human participants, tissue or identifiable data.

With vacancies for an expert member and a lay member, applications are invited from those with prior experience of working in the fields of health and social care or research as well as those with no previous involvement in this area.

Candidates will have a strong commitment to protecting patients and the public, as well as recognising the need for ethical standards in research.

Regardless of the level of experience, full training in research ethics will be provided.

Positions are voluntary, but expenses may be claimed for travel to meetings and training events.

The closing date for applications is Monday 31 August 2020.
