Virtual Research Ethics Boards Institution License



The vREB is a CAREB-ACCER professional development initiative that facilitates discussion on a series of research ethics case studies. Four case studies are presented for thoughtful reflection and discussion. Consider your and the REB’s points of view along with the supporting TCPS 2 evidence. Let this course be the starting point for seeking knowledge and understanding of research ethics to ultimately preserve the guiding core value of Respect For Human Dignity.


Case studies are presented as overviews designed to include enough information for a fulsome discussion of the ethical issues entailed. You will come away with an appreciation of the variations and nuances of ethics reviews yet understand how those differences contribute to the seeds of professional discussion, learning, and development.
