It is essential that ethics must be considered ahead of any research which is addressing violence against women. When working with vulnerable women, many of whom may have experienced violence or indeed may still be experiencing violence, their safety is of paramount importance. All researchers in this space have an absolute duty of care to the women they are researching.
In this episode, the final in this series, we learn about some of the critical components of designing an ethical research programme. We find out about the unique risks and challenges faced in this field of research, and how to address them. And we discover how research is evolving and adapting to the growing use of remote studies, and online technology. Our co-hosts, Elizabeth Dartnall, Executive Director, SVRI, and Angelica Pino, Grants Manager and Capacity Strengthening Specialist, SVRI speak to Claudia Garcia Moreno, Coordinator of the WHO Multi-Country Study on Women's Health and Domestic Violence Against Women, Nancy Glass, Associate Director, Professor and Independence Foundation Chair, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, and Yandisa Sikweyiya, Specialist Scientist in the Gender and Health Research Unit at the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC).
