The Caribbean Network of Research Ethics Committees (CANREC) is established by the cooperation of Research Ethics Committees across the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) Member States. The purpose of the Network is: i) To provide a sustainable infrastructure for research ethics committees within CARPHA member states to promote, exchange, and cooperate intra-regionally and internationally in matters of research and research ethics. ii) To provide harmonization of multidisciplinary ethical reviews between network members to improve the protection of human participants in all aspects of medical and health-related research involving human beings, human material and data. iii) To augment sharing of information and intellectual resources, policies, and review strategies among network members.

Teaching ethics to medical students is one of the current topics of major interest. Issues of ethics pertaining to anesthesia are unique. This article reviews these issues with respect to the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative periods. The author shares the experience of incorporating ethical issues into every clinical scenario in the problem-based learning sessions of both undergraduate and postgraduate students. In addition to separate modules in didactic and clinical formats, incorporating the ethical aspects into every clinical problem has many advantages. This approach will stimulate students to ponder over the ethical dimension of every clinical scenario, and the reinforcement of this approach during teaching in the clinical setting may help in inculcating these qualities in the students. Additionally, this approach contextualizes these issues to the local and regional perspective, instead of lecturing on the ethical codes developed elsewhere.

'The Saba Health Study' is the first large scale health interview survey of the island. This book presents the main results of the study. It discusses the population's health status, use of health services, and satisfaction with health care. Known health risks, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and overweight are evaluated and compared with situations on the sister island of Curacao and in western countries. Attention is focused on the identification of risk groups in need of specific policy interventions and health promotion programs (AU)

Itinerancy as it relates to health care is a well established practice. In most cases it serves to extend the reach of limited resources to ensure at least a minimum level of care to the largest number of individuals. Non-indigenous itinerant practitioners play an important role where skilled providers are in extremely short supply or non-existent. However, these providers face significant ethical challenges and must practise according to the same general principles that guide the practice of medicine in any setting. Technical competence, communication and consent, utilisation of accepted therapies and appropriate follow-up and delegation of responsibility are essential components of medical and surgical care regardless of practice setting, and remain the responsibilty of the physican.(AU)

While the Medical Faculty of the University of the West Indies has produced many outstanding scholars and practitioners over the past 50 years, social processes in many Caribbean countries have resulted in much suffering. Despite this, the social roots of disease and suffering often have been left out of our medical teaching and ethical discussions. The moral basis of medical care is oriented not only by the individual suffering of patients, but also by the collective experiences of humankind. Hence, failure to engage the social aspects of suffering undermines the moral and pragmatic aspects of medical practice. In the Caribbean, if you are poor, you are likely to have a poor health status. So ethically, medicine and medical teaching need to respond to social suffering, as health and social problems are inseparable. Moreover, the last 3 decades have all seen the call for respect for persons and justice as important values in medical practice in many societies. These values have given medicine its contemporary identify, stressing the paramountcy of the welfare of the patient, the need for informed consent, the requirement to make decent health care equitably available to all, and the importance of empathy and kindness as hallmarks of humane medical care. Historically, the practice of medicine has rested on two pillars: medical knowledge and expertise, and irreproachable medical conduct. Unfortunately, in the Caribbean society a huge discrepancy exists in the time and attention paid to these essential pillars. Nearly all of a doctor's occupations have ethical implications due to the nature of care involving persons: therefore medical teaching and conferences that focus only on the scientific and technical aspects of medicine, without addressing the ethics of care for patients or the developing and improving of the ethical competence of students and practitioners, are incomplete.(AU)

An individual's behavior is created by an amalgam of genetic, environmental, cultural, and historical variables working in concert and changing over time. Variations in nutrition are one class of environmental factors. Linking these to outcome effects requires carefully designed studies. Many considerations are involved, and this paper draws attention to some of the fundamental ones. Psychological and behavioral functions tend to be complex, in part because they are affected by a wide range of variables. Almost any given state-a particular constellation of psychological characteristics displayed by an individual at a given time-can be produced in a variety of ways (AU)
