Ethics Committee

We have formed an Ethics Committee (largely with eminent clinicians and knowledgeable laymen from outside our organization) which will scrutinize any research proposals and support ongoing work of projects. This committee is being offered free of charge to other investigators/ fledgling hospices, who might not have access to this facility. The purpose of an EC review of medical research is to safeguard the dignity, rights, safety, and well-being of the research participants. The EC review comprises of ethical principles and decision-making to solve actual or anticipated dilemmas in the conduct of human research. In our hospice, Clinical Research is permitted only after the approval from the Ethics Committee.
