Dr. David Crowe, Chair, Queensway-Carleton Hospital REB, Ottawa –

“Our REB members were very pleased with Dr. DuVal’s facility for helping us to gain a deeper understanding of fundamental principles with respect to ethics review and for helping us to achieve awareness of current issues in the work of REBs in Canada. His material is well organized and his presentation skills are excellent. He is very open to questions and well able to mold his presentation to the needs of his audience. It is our intention to engage Mr. DuVal for annual education workshops for our REB members.”

Ms. Janice Green, Research Ethics Administrator, Athabasca University, Athabasca, Alberta –

"As a non-clinical REB, we were pleased with Gordon's flexibility in leading discussion of ethical principles and reviewer concerns in contexts that were meaningful to our understanding and experiences."

Mr. Patrick Clifford, Director of Research, Southlake Regional Hospital,

“The workshop was negotiated in advance with Gordon, structured to meet the needs of the Board and the delivery of the content and facilitation of the event was just as I had expected.  The content was on target, delivered interactively and questions were encouraged resulting in robust dialogue.”
