The Global Health Network is pleased to announce the launch of a new seven-module eLearning course which has been adapted from the WHO training manual and resources on:‘Ethics in epidemics, emergencies and disasters: Research, surveillance and patient care’.
The course offers comprehensive training exploring the wide range of ethical issues faced by health professionals and policy makers working in the context of epidemics/pandemics and disaster situations, focusing primarily on the key areas of research, surveillance and patient care.
Topics include:

  • Boundaries between public health practice, surveillance, and research.

  • Processes for ethical review.

  • Conflicts between the common good and individual autonomy in surveillance, research and clinical trials.

  • Publication ethics.

  • Triage, resource allocation and standards of care.

  • Professional duties of health care workers during public health surveillance and research.
