INFO SHEET #7 – Conducting Research with Vulnerable Groups

Informed consent is designed to be sure that participants really understand what they are signing up for – they understand the research, its risks and benefits, and are participating willingly. This can be challenging when working with more vulnerable groups – those who may be compromised in their ability to provide truly informed and voluntary consent.

INFO SHEET #6: Sharing Research Knowledge

Knowledge mobilization is the act of sharing information or knowledge gained from research with particular audiences and ‘end-users’. Knowledge mobilization can inform public debate about issues, help develop better policies or practices for our communities, enhance and improve services, and influence decision-making. Learn more about how researchers share their findings and how the public can contribute as well.
