Training to enhance the reproducibility and rigour of research involving the use of animals and animal derived material.

 

This course is designed to support individuals to fully implement the 3Rs principles of humane scientific technique when planning, designing, conducting, reviewing, analysing and disseminating research involving the use of animals or animal derived material.

We believe that responsible animal research does not just happen. It requires:

  1.  an awareness and understanding of contemporary best practice standards in all aspects of research practice (including ethics, integrity, experimental design, methodology, statistical analysis and research dissemination).
  2. the ability to recognise what 'best practice' means for a given research project at a given moment of time (note - this will change throughout an individuals research career).
  3. the confidence and competence to implement best practice when it matters i.e when planning, designing, conducting, analysing and disseminating their research.

 

Our Responsible Animal Research: Critical, Challenging and Creative Thinking course is aimed at individuals at any stage in their career. This course is designed to compliment legislative training requirements and not to replace or duplicate it.

NOTE -  Attendees of the LIVE courses will be awarded 10 LASA CPD points. Attendees of the ON-DEMAND course will be awarded 6 LASA CPD points.

 

Having completed this course individuals will be able to:

  • communicate their research in an open and transparent manner, with an informed understanding of the range of societal opinions that exist on this issue.
  • recognise what implementation of the 3Rs and best practice means in the context of individual research projects, and why it is important for the rigour and reproducibility of research.
  • take ownership of your research conduct and the contribution you make to your local research culture.
  • demonstrate awareness of what research integrity means in the context of animal research.
  • confidently design and plan research involving the use of animals using a range of tools and resources that have been developed to support researchers to improve research practices.
  • understand the importance of good animal welfare, consider what factors can impact on the lifetime experience of laboratory animals, and reflect on how to enhance efforts to implement the 3Rs.
