This unit presents and explains a number of current ethical issues in research ethics, including unethical research, standards of due diligence in a study, paternity and plagiarism guidelines. The role and working methods of research ethics boards are described. Finally, clearly articulated standards of good clinical practice in research are provided and adapted to local realities and contexts. These include obtaining valid informed consent, consideration of certain subgroups, standards of care for study participants, access to study drugs after the completion of a clinical trial, incentive issues affecting researchers and participants, dissemination and publication of research results, and implementation of research results. Clinical decision-making in the 21st century is fraught with ethical complexity. Health care professionals must practice medicine in a manner that reflects clinical, social and ethical responsibility. Advances in medical science require us to proactively formulate creative solutions to challenges in patient care, whether clinical or ethical. There are debates not only about quality of life, but also about the quality of death. The Human Genome Project exposed the intricacies of heredity and susceptibility to disease, opening new doors in a coming era of personalized medicine. Health research, especially in the era of the HIV pandemic, continues to broaden the ethical dimension of our work. In this century, society will judge the profession on how it responds to health care challenges – health professionals will be held accountable for their clinical expertise and ability to place clinical care within an ethical and legal framework that respects human rights.
At the same time, our sensitivity to the cultural dimensions of care and the impact of medical care on the community and environment must also be taken into account in an equation that is becoming increasingly complex.

The course aims to develop capacity and excellence in the ethical and legal analysis of issues raised in health care and research. Graduates will be able to apply their knowledge to the assessment and management of bioethical and medico-legal issues, proposing solutions that are ethically justifiable and within the limits of the law.

It includes research projects of a primarily normative and legal nature as well as empirical projects (qualitative or quantitative) that contain a normative and legal element. Students are trained in each part of the research cycle (question formulation; literature research; use of secondary sources; primary and secondary reasoning; ethical and legal analysis; primary data collection and analysis methodology), including report writing. In terms of values and attitudes, the course aims to instill in students a commitment to ethical research. The course prepares them to create a research protocol/proposal adapted to their project and finally a research report. Welcome to the University of Pretoria Centre for Law and Medicine.
