Beyond regulations: ethics in human subjects research
University of North Carolina Press, 1999 - Medical - 279 pages
Across a broad range of disciplines -- in medicine, social science, and the humanities -- researchers, scholars, teachers, and administrators increasingly are looking for new ways to approach ethical issues in research with human subjects. Questions about how relationships between funders and researchers should affect research design, for example, or whether the potential benefits of research can outweigh the importance of its subjects' interests are inadequately addressed by the prevailing, regulation-based research ethics paradigm.This book constitutes a reexamination of research ethics. It combines case studies and commentaries by a multidisciplinary group of scholars and researchers to explore such topics as informed consent, conflict of interest, confidentiality, and research on illegal behavior. All human subjects research takes place within complex social, cultural, and political contexts, the contributors argue. Increased consideration of the relationships between researchers and theirsubjects, funders, and institutions within these contexts will facilitate research that is sensitive and responsible as well as scientifically fruitful.
