The CIHR Standing Committee on Ethics (SCE) is a Subcommittee of CIHR’s Governing Council, with a mandate to identify emerging ethical issues of strategic relevance with respect to health and health research. The SCE is also charged with providing the Governing Council with high-level strategic advice on the ethical, legal and socio-cultural dimensions of CIHR’s mandate as set out in the CIHR Act, at its initiative or at the request of the Governing Council or the President.
It has been a year and a half since the SCE first met in Ottawa, in September 2014. Attached, please find an update from CIHR’s Vice-President of Research, Knowledge Translation and Ethics, Jane Aubin. Included is a communique regarding the recent work of the SCE and a logic model outlining ethics performance measurement strategies.Attachment:
