We are delighted to announce that we have secured ESRC funding for a project related to the Disaster Bioethics COST action.
The project is called: Military healthcare professionals’ experiences of ethical challenges whilst on Ebola humanitarian deployment (Sierra Leone). We will be interviewing returning British military medical personal about the ethical challenges they faced. We will also be preparing training materials, which we will make available through this action. For more information, see: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/activity/mds/projects/HaPS/PCCS/MESH/research/Military-Medical-Ethics/ebola.aspx
When preparing the application for funding we were in communication with Niklas Juth and Johan Von Schreeb, who will be collecting similar data to ourselves and with whom we hope to work closely over the coming months. Lisa Schwartz, who attended our COST action meeting in Porto, has kindly agreed to serve on the Advisory Group for the project. Her group generously shared their interview guide with us to enable us to compare data in the future.
If anyone is working on anything similar, please get in touch with us. Likewise, if anyone would like to work with us using COST mechanisms (e.g. for STSM) to work on training materials or more theoretical issues related to our research.
