  • bring the question of ethics to the research table and help guide your judgement and decision making
  • help you embed ethical research practices in all that you/your team do
  • increase your knowledge and understanding of the specific rights and needs of consumers, peers and carers in research and evaluation
  • understand formal ethics processes and the role of Human Research Ethics Committees (HRECs)
  • access useful resources and links to support ethics in research and evaluation.

The guide is intended to be read alongside Ask The Experts: A CMHDARN Best Practice Guide for Enabling Consumer and Carer Leadership in Research and Evaluation.
