Ethics And Data Management

Course Details

Background

This course is designed to provide the researcher with ethical issues encountered in research and how to handle ethical issues. The leaner will also be oriented with the operations of the Zambia National Health Research Authority (NHRA) regulations. The course also covers management of data for research in a timely, accurate and quality way.

Rationale

In most cases, research participants are side-lined and do not benefit from some research projects conducted. Indeed, knowledge and training on ethical issues surrounding research subjects is warrantable internationally. This course provides just that.

Many individuals fail to collect and store quality data for their research, hence affecting the impact of their manuscript late alone the hope for publishing in a peer reviewed journal. When quality data is collected and stored well, it will not only answer the research question for which data was collected but often is a gold mine where many research questions can be answered in future. This course has been designed to address data management challenges in research.
