Details

3 Speakers discussing implications for different groups: 1) a Researcher – research integrity requires: a diverse research workforce, funding & infrastructure, as advocated in the Cape Town Statement; active participation by minoritised populations at all steps of the research process; transparent methods and rationale; diverse representation and appropriately disaggregated data that avoids stigmatisation; careful examination of confounding and structural factors lying behind inequity, and avoidance of simplistic or inaccurate inferences 2) an Anthropologist/Educator – trustworthy research translation requires: increasing awareness of race and ethnicity as sociopolitical, rather than biologic, constructs; teaching/modelling reflexivity when critiquing and implementing research; exposing and avoiding/combating inequitable practices and policies based on flawed data and interpretation eg in diagnostic and management racial bias; use of race-based guidelines and decision making tools; policies that harm disadvantaged patients 3) an Editor – integrity in research reporting and dissemination requires: diversity of authors, reviewers and editors; preventing gatekeeping of knowledge from minoritised scholars by recognising and dismantling barriers that exclude them from participation, while increasing their opportunities to participate; implementing minimum standards for publishing to advance equity
