The Nuffield Council on Bioethics and The Global Health Network have launched a Spanish translation of a new e-learning course for researchers covering the core ethical issues that arise when conducting research in global health emergencies, from outbreaks of infectious diseases to natural and human-made disasters.
The course is entirely based on our report Research in global health emergencies: ethical issues, published in January.
We have worked previously with The Global Health Network to develop an online course covering the ethics of involving children in clinical research.
