Latest BCA-WA-ETHICS publication: The ethicist’s guide to the evaluation of preclinical research from a sex and gender perspective
19th of February, 2021
The ethicist’s practical guide to the evaluation of preclinical research from a sex and gender perspective is the latest output from BCA-WA-ETHICS, aiming to guide research evaluators in National Research Ethics Committees (NRECs) and Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) on how to take into consideration sex and gender while appraising preclinical research protocols. This can promote the credibility, generalizability, and validity of health research and its impact on the health and wellbeing of women, men, and gender-diverse individuals in an equitable manner. The Guide contains a three-step Sex and Gender Analysis Framework for the Evaluation of Preclinical Research containing a list of questions to ask when appraising preclinical research, as well as a set of practice exercises to help ethicists and scientists affiliated to NRECs and IRBs test their application of the Framework's guidelines.
