CAREB-ACCER Virtual Research Ethics Board (vREB): Case 2 now open

The CAREB-ACCER Virtual Research Ethics Board (vREB) Case 2 is now open. The case is entitled: 

“Survey to determine culturally different patterns of emotional growth and stability among young adults” 

The Virtual REB is a CAREB-ACCER professional development initiative that facilitates discussion on a series of research ethics case studies. While the cases presented are study overviews rather than full protocols, they are designed to include enough information for a fulsome discussion of the ethical issues entailed.

Case Studies are posted for CAREB-ACCER members across Canada to contribute their thoughts on relevant ethical issues as if conducting a research ethics review. Results will be compiled and presented in a case debrief that will be archived on the CAREB-ACCER website as a training resource which can be used by CAREB-ACCER members to support the orientation and training of REB members and professionals within their own institutions.

For more information on the CAREB -ACCER vREB initiative, visit  the Professional development page of our website. Please note that while Case 1 was open to the public, Case 2 is available for CAREB-ACCER members only.

To participate, members must be logged in at
