Course Description:

Good ethics are good business. Yet sometimes we all struggle to do the right thing in the workplace. Maybe we feel stressed or overwhelmed, and the easier option becomes more attractive. We could also be afraid to speak up—or just unsure what the ethical decision would be. 

Ethics in the laboratory covers acting with professional integrity, understanding and abiding with impartiality and conflict of interest guidelines, and maintaining confidentiality.

This engaging training course will cover the ethics knowledge that is required to ensure laboratory activities are conducted impartially and ensuring objectivity is maintained. It includes in-depth discussions and case studies that will challenge your understanding of professional integrity and ethics.
