Order Description

Ethics in Research

The responsible conduct of research is essential to protecting both human and non-human animal subjects. Vulnerable populations have been exploited throughout the centuries, and even today, research subjects are at risk of injury or death. As a researcher, you must be able to identify potential areas of ethical concern. Sometimes these areas are obvious, whereas other times you must consider the far-reaching effects of the research on study participants.

In this Discussion, you will consider the possible ethical dilemmas that might occur while conducting your research.

In preparation for this Discussion think about the following three points.
• The informed consent process needed for your research
• The potential populations participating in your search
• Any conflict of interest by yourself or other members of the research team
post a comprehensive response that addresses only the following:
• What are two ethical issues that may affect your proposed research?
• How can you avoid these issues?
• Will your research require IRB or IACUC review? If so, what level of review? Why?
