Her expertise in research focuses on public health ethics, professional ethics and ethics education. In her (interactive) talk titled ‘The impact of positive approaches towards RCR education in practice’ she will address both the teaching philosophy that RCR education should pro-actively approach students and researchers via education, as well as that some data are shared how positive impact can be achieved.
