National survey seeking participants: Managing ethical studies on sensitive issues
Published: Thursday 27th April 2017
The Institute of Child Protection Studies (ICPS) is currently conducting a national survey to explore what children, young people and adults think about when deciding to take part in social research or provide their consent for children to take part.
This survey is part of the MESSI Study: Managing Ethical Studies on Sensitive Issues, an ARC Discovery Project.
The study aims to provide urgently-needed guidance to HRECs and other professionals on how to best identify the risks and benefits of children’s participation in research, and guidance to researchers on how to help ensure children's rights and wellbeing are attended to throughout the entire research process.
This survey takes 10 minutes to complete, and ICPS is seeking participants from the following groups:
Young people (aged 12 – 17)
Parents / guardians (of children aged 7 – 14)
Professionals and other adults responsible for children aged 7 – 14, including teachers, principals, youth workers and managers in government departments and non-government departments.
Participants can go into the draw for a $200 voucher.
We would also be grateful if ACU staff can promote the survey to family and friends, and share the survey link (www.acu.edu.au/messi) on social media. Thank-you for your support.
