Optimising Opportunities for Consent

Gaining informed consent is pivotal to the success of many types of research. There are a number of ways that researchers can facilitate this including exploring a variety of consent models and ensuring they have a process that is inclusive while still complying with GCP guidelines.

Leadership on Ice

Sir Ernest Shackleton has been called ‘the greatest leader that ever came on God’s earth, bar none’, yet he never led a team larger than 27 people, failed to achieve nearly every goal he set and, until recently, had been little remembered since his death in 1922. Stranded in the frozen Antarctic sea for nearly two years, Shackleton and his team of polar explorers endured extreme temperatures, hazardous ice, dwindling food supplies and complete isolation. Despite these seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the group remained cohesive, congenial, and mercifully alive - a fact that speaks not just to luck but to an unparalleled feat of leadership.

You will learn from this gripping and inspirational account of survival against all odds as you strive to lead and effectively deliver services in the midst of a high pressured, fast moving and continuously changing environment.
