We used health administrative data from 2 Canadian provinces (Ontario and Alberta) and the Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston. All data were linked and analyzed anonymously. The study was approved by the research ethics board at each study site (Sunnybrook and Womens College Health Sciences Centre Research Ethics Board, the University of Alberta Health Research Ethics Board and the Partners Human Research Committee).. All health care activities in Ontario and Alberta are publicly funded and are captured in population-based administrative datasets. These datasets include the Discharge Abstract Database, which captures all hospital admissions and, in the years we sampled, used diagnostic codes from the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th revision (ICD-10); the Registered Persons Database, which captures each persons date of death (including deaths that occur out of province); and the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System, which captures ...
Basic biomedical research and clinical trials have been the means of understanding disease and discovery of effective treatments. While research science is portrayed as an objective, empirical field, it too is confronted with specific ethical issues and dilemmas. Yet medical and scientific research at times in its history has not always reflected a genuine concern for the principled research and particularly a commitment to the protection of human subjects. Building on such foundation documents as the Nuremberg Code, the Declaration of Helsinki, and the Belmont Report, modern research ethics emphasizes the importance of human subjects research protections in the an increasingly complex research environment spanning all areas of biomedical and biotechnological research and beyond, as well as the increasingly international and global nature of such research endeavors. Relevant issues to research ethics include among others: global and national governance, privacy, scientific integrity, ...

The continuous evolution of internet and related social media technologies and platforms have opened up vast new means for communication, socialization, expression, and collaboration. They also have provided new resources for researchers seeking to explore, observe, and measure human opinions, activities, and interactions. However, those using the internet and social media for research - and those tasked with facilitating and monitoring ethical research such as ethical review boards - are confronted with a continuously expanding set of ethical dilemmas. Internet Research Ethics for the Social Age: New Challenges, Cases, and Contexts directly engages with these discussions and debates, and stimulates new ways to think about - and work towards resolving - the novel ethical dilemmas we face as internet and social media-based research continues to evolve. The chapters in this book - from an esteemed collection of global scholars and researchers - offer extensive reflection about current internet ...

Perhaps Hwang and his team are a bit reluctant because they already know beforehand that it is physically and scientifically impossible that these stem cells from cloned human embryos really match the patients into whom they were injected? What about addressing the other ethical requirements of the Declaration of Helsinki and the Nuremberg Code - e.g., the fact that patients should understand that the research being performed is not standard medical care, that the good of the patient involved outweighs that of society or science, that patients must give ethically and legally valid informed consent to participate, as well as various other ethical obligations of others directly complicit in this research. One wonders why the international press doesnt include some of these international research ethics requirements in their investigative reporting.

Science is vital and it is also big business. In the U.S., one of the biggest founders of scientific research is the National Institute of Health (NIH). As the NIH writes the checks, you can imagine that it finds the reproducibility crisis to be very troubling. To help fix these problems, the NIH has launched a new initiative to increase the rigor and reproducibility of the research it funds. Readers of ITNS will find many of the NIH recommendations familiar; they include data sharing, full disclosure of exclusions, better planning for sample sizes, and more. You can check out the initiative here, including some nice videos the NIH made to explain some important research practices:. https://www.nih.gov/research-training/rigor-reproducibility/publications. ...

Introduction. Psychologists have a real dilemma in carrying out works in socially sensitive areas. Such work raises difficult ethical issues and yet it may provide insights into some of societys most pressing problems. Discuss issues relating to the ethics of SSR, such as those raised in this quotation Socially sensitive research describes studies in which there are potential social consequences or implications, either directly for the participants in research or the class of individuals represented by the research. Socially sensitive research can produce risks for many people other than those directly involved, for example, members of the group to which participants belong, people closely associated with the participants, the experimenter/s or even the research institution to which the experimenter/s belong. Sieber and Stanley 1988 have argued that ethical concerns can arise with respect to 4 major aspects of such research; deciding on the research question or hypothesis to be tested, the ...

How and why does a given social value come to shape the way an individual thinks, feels,and acts in a specific social situation? This study links ideas from Goffmans frame analysis to other lines of research, proposing that dramatic narratives of variable content, vividness,and language-in-use produce variation in the accessibility of schematic, internal cultural frameworks, and, thereby, variation in the social value frames that gain situational primacy. Hypotheses derived from the argument are experimentally supported, and results encourage further research on the process of social value framing, which operates as a person crosses oundaries in the complex subcultural mosaic. ...
Figure 1. Flow diagram summarizing patient recruitment and progress in the study. Seventy-three individuals were initially assessed to take part in the study, of these, 18 declined to participate and 7 were excluded for not meeting inclusion criteria.

BACKGROUND: Cluster randomized trials are an increasingly important methodological tool in health research. In cluster randomized trials, intact social units or groups of individuals, such as medical practices, schools, or entire communities--rather than individual themselves--are randomly allocated to intervention or control conditions, while outcomes are then observed on individual cluster members. The substantial methodological differences between cluster randomized trials and conventional randomized trials pose serious challenges to the current conceptual framework for research ethics. The ethical implications of randomizing groups rather than individuals are not addressed in current research ethics guidelines, nor have they even been thoroughly explored. The main objectives of this research are to: (1) identify ethical issues arising in cluster trials and learn how they are currently being addressed; (2) understand how ethics reviews of cluster trials are carried out in different countries (Canada,

Published in Science, McGills Jonathan Kimmelman and Benjamin Carlisle and CMUs Alex John London argue that current research ethics frameworks do not flag drug trials that, while not putting patients at risk, produce biased evidence. As an example, they point to phase IV research - when pharmaceutical companies test drugs and devices that have been approved for marketing. They insist that without an adequate system of checks in place, phase IV trials will continue to be used by drug companies to market products without generating the information that clinicians and policy makers can use to improve care and maintain a more cost-effective health system.. Rigorously designed and executed research has a critical role in improving patient care and restraining ballooning healthcare costs, said Kimmelman, associate professor of biomedical ethics. There is currently a push to streamline the ethical review of research. In this process, oversight systems should be empowered to separate scientific ...
Subjects. The infants in this study were recruited through the Public Health Division, Capital Health Authority (Edmonton, Alberta). All of the infants were born at term. Ethical approval was obtained through the Health Research Ethics Board, University of Alberta and the Capital Health Authority (Edmonton, Alberta). Thirty-seven infants aged from 5 to 13 months (mean, 8.4 months) were studied. None of the infants could walk independently. The infants stepping ability was discussed with a parent. Only those infants who showed 10 consecutive steps at a time, as reported by a parent, were brought in for the experiment. The parent was instructed to practice stepping with the infants for 1-2 min daily for ∼1-2 weeks before the experiment. Previous work has shown practice improves our chances of obtaining good stepping (Yang et al., 1998). Informed and written consent was obtained from a parent before the infant participated in the study. The experiments were conducted in accordance with the ...

A paper documenting the cases will be published March 16 in The New England Journal of Medicine.. The article is a call to awareness for patients, physicians and regulatory agencies of the risks of this kind of minimally regulated, patient-funded research, said Jeffrey Goldberg, MD, PhD, professor and chair of ophthalmology at the Stanford University School of Medicine and co-author of the paper.. The three patients - all women, ranging in age from 72 to 88 - suffered from macular degeneration, a common, progressive disease of the retina that leads to loss of vision. Before the surgery, the vision in their eyes ranged from 20/30 to 20/200. Now, the patients are likely to remain blind, said co-author Thomas Albini, MD, an associate professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of Miami, where two of the patients were subsequently treated for complications from the stem cell treatments. Although I cant say its impossible, its extremely unlikely they would regain vision.. Appealing ...
Just this week, Lisas son spotted a pair of young brothers on the street near their home in Bushwick. He turned to his mom with pleading eyes.. When am I going to get a brother? asked Daniel..

In this article, the authors drew from the epistemological and methodological considerations of neighboring social science fields (i.e., counseling psychology, education, sociology, and womens studies), which suggest a reevaluation of reflexive research practice(s). In discussing the implications this reevaluation may have for future sport management research, the authors contend that such dialogue may encourage scholars to understand that, while adopting a reflexive approach is good research practice, it may also mean taking a closer look at how our biases, epistemologies, identities, and values are shaped by whiteness and dominant ways of knowing and, in turn, serve to affect our research practice. Thus, this may allow all researchers, with explicit consideration for those in positions of conceptual, empirical, and methodological, as well as cultural and racial, power, to acknowledge and work toward a more meaningful point of consciousness in conducting sport management research. ...

In this paper we present findings from the two bar smoking projects. Study 1 focused on understanding differing rates of non-compliance among a random sample of San Francisco stand-alone bars. Study 2 has concentrated on San Francisco stand-alone bars serving primarily Irish, Asian, and Latino patrons. Both studies have used a mixed method approach to research, coupling quantitative and qualitative data generated though structured observation with data collected from semi-structured interviews with bar patrons and staff. All procedures in both studies were reviewed for compliance with research ethics guidelines and were approved by the institutional review board of the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation. After identifying the potential universe of urban stand-alone bars through compilation of California Alcohol Beverage Control data, listings in local print and internet bar guides, phone books, and newspapers targeting various ethnic groups, a rigorous in-person survey was conducted ...

Examination of recent trends in reproducibility and transparency practices in biomedical research reveals an ongoing lack of access to full datasets and detailed protocols for both clinical and non-clinical studies.
Germline editing is banned in New Zealand under guidelines set by the Health Research Council of New Zealand. As part of the Research Ethics Guidelines, the agency concluded in 2018, there is insufficient knowledge about the possible consequences, hazards and effects on future generations of germline gene editing. Implanting genetically modified embryos is also banned by the Human Assisted Reproductive Technology (HART) Act 2004. Although genetically modified is not defined in the act, the Royal Society of New Zealands gene editing panel considers gene editing genetic modification. There is ongoing discussion among scientists about whether germline gene editing should be allowed.. Products/Research. None. Regulatory Timeline. 2019: An international group of researchers, including some from New Zealand, call for a global moratorium on clinical uses of germline editing after a Chinese scientist genetically edited embryos during fertility treatments and at least two of those embryos were ...

Do well by doing good is now a mantra for many leading companies. Yet C. B. Bhattacharya, Sankar Sen and Daniel Korschun, authors of Leveraging Corporate Responsibility: The Stakeholder Route to Maximizing Business and Social Value, offer research showing that very few stakeholders -- including consumers, investors and employees -- are aware of what companies are doing to be socially and environmentally responsible. Wharton management professor Witold Henisz spoke with two of the authors, Bhattacharya and Sen, on why caring about the social and environmental concerns of your stakeholders makes good business sense.

In cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA) it is usually assumed that a QALY is of equal value to everybody, irrespective of the patients age. However, it is possible that society assigns different social values to a QALY according to who gets it. In this paper we discuss the possibility of weighting health benefits for age in CEA. We also examinethe possibility that age-related preferences depend on the size of the health gain. An experiment was performedto test these hypotheses. The results assessing suggest that the patients age is a relevant factor when assessing health gains ...

The University of Delaware (UD or University), its faculty, staff and students are committed to conducting their research and scholarly endeavors with the highest ethical standards. Consistent with Federal Government guidelines and requirements, and with widely-recognized best practices to achieve the responsible conduct of research, the University has developed, conducts and maintains current an effective Research Compliance & Ethics Program (RCEP). In doing so, UD exercises due diligence to prevent, detect and correct any research-related conduct that is not consistent Government and best-practice collective tenets. Additionally, the University creates and promotes (in an ongoing fashion) an institution-wide culture that encourages behavior/conduct that is ethical and complaint, and in accord with applicable research-related requirements, guidelines and best practices.. To those ends, the University established and maintains standards and procedures to prevent, detect and correct ...
This pilot study will explore the usefulness of a series of questions asking about views of research from the perspective of minority and economically disadvantaged research participants. Racial and ethnic minorities are consistently under-represented in clinical research. This under-representation has been attributed primarily to an unwillingness to participate in research because of mistrust in the research establishment, especially in light of widely known historical examples of abuse. However, more recent data suggests that not being invited to participate in research, or stringent entry criteria, may contribute substantially to the low numbers of ethnic minority research participants. The perspectives of racial and ethnic minorities who are knowledgeable about or participating in research are important to understanding the kinds of vulnerabilities that exist and any important barriers to participation.. People 18 years of age and older from the Cardozo clinic in Washington, D.C., who are ...

Participation usually means doing two interviews, 60-90 minutes each (possibly longer, if typed rather than spoken). In these interviews, I will ask you to talk about your modding work, experience, and viewpoints. I will also ask to be able to join you in online forums or chat rooms (limited to whatever you feel comfortable with) to observe your modding-related conversations and interactions with others. There are no obligations -- you can participate as much or as little as you wish, and you can withdraw at any time. ...

Informed consent - freely given - is required of all human subjects participating in a research project according to all accepted ethics guidelines. This means that participants should be fully informed of expectations, risks and other factors before they agree to take part in the project. At Fanshawe College, full disclosure to subjects of the nature of the research is required, unless the research design requires that certain elements of the research not be provided to subjects, and provided the REB is satisfied that no harm would accrue to the subjects.
