MANAGING CONTEMPORARY ETHICAL ISSUES IN BIOBANKING

PRESENTATION SUMMARY:

Whilst Biobanking has been around for many years it has been increasingly identified as a core component that underpins research only in the last 20 years. Whilst most of the activities of biobanks fall within existing ethical frameworks (eg. consent is required for collection and usage), additional ethical considerations have been identified that remain to some extent incompletely resolved. Jurisdictions at the national and international level have taken differing approaches to tackle some of these issues, such as custodianship, duty of care (return of individual results), transborder flow of samples and now increasingly transborder flow of data arising from biospecimens. In this webinar Dr Zeps will summarise some of the issues and present a contemporary evaluation of how individual jurisdictions have attempted to resolve them.

SPEAKER:

Dr. Nikolaj Zeps, SJGHC Subiaco Hospital, Australia

ADDING VALUE TO YOUR ORGANIZATION WITH STANDARDS

PRESENTATION SUMMARY:

Today’s world demands speed, efficiency, accuracy and reliability. All of this within the confines of limited funding and management expectations of continuous improvement. Standards can help achieve these objectives. This presentation will discuss the different types of standards available and how they can be implemented. Having a team of qualified, trained and competent staff, supported by documented policies and procedures is the first step towards adding value to an organization through quality management systems.  The presentation will include:

  • Discussion of how standards can impact operational efficiency, customer satisfaction, safety and staff performance
  • Risk management
  • Use of voluntary and mandatory standards
  • Types of standards
  • Roles and responsibilities for successful implementation
