Instructions and Help about Which Form 5495 Ethics

Hi everybody I'm going to try and do a video for you which will and that is aimed to assist you as you complete the assignment for the critiquing research theory and knowledge module so just to repeat the warning that no field work or research is to be carried out for this module it's purely proposal based so on this video we're not going to talk about the proposal discussion well we will go through the ethical approval form which as you can see consists of a two thousand word limits and I know some of you have expressed some concern about whether or not you can meet that limit but I'm hoping that you will see that as you start supporting the detail required within the ethics forum that you will know such a workout will quickly rise not to be concerned about that okay so let's go through the form so the first thing that you'll see is the checklist that you will need to complete and there will be some variation on what you will need to complete on this form given that you are doing different projects however in the main and you will have very similar approaches to what is or is not required and the detail will be different in the content alone so the first thing that one half is the risk assessment form and the risk assessment form is something that you should be familiar with you know placement and you have various work experience and it will be the same kind of issues that you'll need to consider when you're out in the field as a researcher so for your safety you'll need to think about where you're going who's going to know where you are how are you going to get help if you need it what are the sensible steps that you're going to take to make sure that you come to no harm and that might be things like making sure that somebody knows what address you're going to and how long you expect to be there with that in mind you also need to be aware of the confidentiality and anonymity that you are offering the participants so you'll want to be very clear and select about who has that information and it's always going to be reliably there if you don't phone in at the time you say that you will when they will alert somebody to come look for you other things can be to protect yourself if there are potentially violent people you might be seeing or people who are using drugs and not to eat or drink everything that you might be given even if you think that this is safe there are times when it is not safe and sometimes to err on the side of caution is better so the DBS check will be whether you have people you're visiting participants who are from vulnerable communities so if you are intending to interview professionals in a work setting then that is unlikely that you will need that but if you're going to interview people who are in vulnerable communities then it's something you will need to consider as the research you need to make a judgement on this and explain your reasoning for it and if you are unsure run it by your group tutor and get their take on it the next three areas are the information that you would provide to the participants so everybody would have a letter of invitation that is inviting somebody to take part in the research with some basic information about what is required the participants information sheet is usually something that's more generally distributed and it will give the detail of what is involved for the participants so that would be you know how long it's going to take them to be involved is it a survey that would take 20 minutes there's an interview that could take up to an hour will it be audio recorded while it could transcribe how long the information be kept for so it's somebody making a decision to participate in your research is duly informed and once they're informed they would sign the consent form and often consent forms would detail in brief the areas that have been agreed so that all those parts are tied up together whether you need participant recruitment material will depend on what your research design is on where you're trying to recruit participants from and you'll make a judgment of whether that's needed or not if you're intending to recruit through a local authority or a organization an agency then it's likely that you would want some consent in agreement with the agency so that the protocol for using and their records of people use their service or work for their service are clear and explicit for you and for them and for potential participants and there any information is in accordance with the confidentiality and anonymity guidelines and boundaries that you have inserted into your research design so research instruments or sometimes things we call research equipment could include something like a questionnaire and it could also include things like a dictaphone that you would need in order to transcribe information a computer in order to type up your report and look if you wanted to use anything that was own more technical than that I don't know you might have things such as cameras that you want to give people there might be templates of things forms that you might want them to fill in so all those things things that are the equipment's that will enable you to do more study would go in that section there if they required and then you can talk about them in your ethical form and a draft interview guide so a draft interview guide would be the questions that you're going to ask the participants usually with an.
