05/01/2017

The Council for International Organizations of Medical Sciences (CIOMS) has recently published an updated edition of the International Ethical Guidelines for Health-related Research involving Humans. Developed in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO) these guidelines set out 25 key ethical principles for health-related research along with a detailed commentary on how the principles could be applied in practice.

An overview of the main challenges, key revisions, additions and changes included in the newly updated fourth edition was published in JAMA in December 2016.
