Week 8 – NGR 5110 – Nursing Research
Ethical Issues and Consent and Participant Recruitment
Welcome to week eight class,
No Discussion Board Assignment
See WiKi relating to chapters 12 and 13, this week’s lecture. This week there are no formal discussion board assignments. However,
This week we will explore some of the ethical issues that take place in research and to recruit participants for your studies.
Why should we have a concern regarding ethical issues in research? What is the significance of obtaining participant consent prior to their engagement in any study?
In the past, you may have heard me mentioned that all research is flawed. While this may be true, the discrepancies noted should never be intentional in research. Yes, human error does occur, but issues such as plagiarism, falsification of data, mistreatment of participants, and other atrocities should never occur. Unfortunately, the Nuremberg Experiment, the Tuskegee Experiment, and the Guatemala Study were all crimes that were conducted in the name of research. Altruism, benevolence, informed consent, participant rights, ethical treatment are all required traits or behaviors that researchers should be aware of and implement.
