HEALYAC Meeting 4
During meeting 4, the Human Environments Analysis Laboratory discussed the importance of research ethics with our council. As an introduction, our council watched the documentary, “Three Identical Strangers.” The documentary talked about the famous ‘The Neubauer twin experiment’ and consequences of conducting a study without ethical standards.
The HEAL-YAC later engaged in a group discussion on several ideas tied with the documentary and came up with questions and thoughts including research ethics, nature vs nurture, informed consent, and “right to information.”
After viewing this movie, HEALYAC members began a workshop on ‘TCPS 2 Tutorial Course on Research Ethics’, supplied through the Government of Canada.
