Case study

Haplo Ethics Monitor has been a resounding success for us - reducing decision times, introducing transparency to all stakeholders, and providing an online virtual replacement for scheduled committee meetings.

'One of the challenges of research ethics is the scale of work involved for committee members — who are mostly faculty members — and the difficulty of tracking applications and decisions. Both are required to support the process and ensure that all applications are treated fairly.

The time involved in performing this work is often underestimated by universities — the variety and complexity of decisions requires extensive discussion and negotiation.

Even more challenging are the logistical issues of organising committee meetings, which are traditionally held face-to-face and require quorate attendance.

The University of Westminster introduced Ethics Monitor in 2014 to facilitate the management of Research Ethics Committees, to help track the progress of applications and to allow discussions to occur and be managed virtually.

The system has been a resounding success — reducing decision times, introducing transparency to all stakeholders, and providing an online virtual replacement for scheduled committee meetings.'
