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, ...

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.

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. The remaining 48 subjects were randomly assigned to treatment and control groups. Both groups received identical assessments, however only the treatment group received perceptual-cognitive training. Only one individual from the treatment group did not complete the training and subsequent follow-up assessments.. Procedure. This clinical study, using a parallel design, was approved on 27th June 2017 by the University of Victoria Human Research Ethics Board. The authors confirm that all ongoing and related trials for this intervention are registered (NCT03763344). This study was not registered before the enrolment of participants since UVic Research Ethics Board did not consider this study as a clinical trial but as a research study on sub-clinical ...
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..

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 ...

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 ...

Furthermore, Id like to think that medicine generally attracts people who excel in being both good in character and intelligent. Many other fields attract people with either of these qualities, but not necessarily both at the same time to the same degree (though there are always special individuals in every field who break the mold). This profession is supposed to reward people for being both of these, and our moral compulsion, ethical conduct, and compassion calls upon physicians to treat all patients to the best of their abilities - no matter the risk (reputation and financial stability should be the last concerns on their minds). For a long time, the judgment and performance of physicians have gone unquestioned, and they have been very well compensated. However, it seems that as the medical field becomes more business-oriented and litiginous, the part of medicine that should encourage physicians to be good, compassionate people is tossed by the wayside. As we strive for reforms aiming at ...

Continuation Request: Research projects are approved for a period of one year, unless a shorter interval is specified by the IRB. All projects that continue beyond the maximine shall submit (a) an IRB application cover sheet indicating the PI, the project title, and that a continuation is requested, and (b) a brief statement about any changes or modifications to the protocol since originally approved. This should be sighed by the PI and his/her department head, and submitted directly to the IRB Chairperson (or designee) for review. The IRB Chairperson, or designee, may approve the continuation. If modifications have been made since the original approval that either significantly change the project or significantly increase participant risk, then the IRB Chairperson (or designee) may inform the PI that submission of a completely new application is required. This application will then be reviewed as a new application (see section F1.1.1, F1.2.1, or F1.3.1). If modifications are approved, then the ...
A particular challenge in terms of research ethics lies in our general proclivity to engage in wishful thinking. Specifically, this means that a researcher should be especially cautious in drawing conclusions from experiments if closer reflection causes him to recognise that psychological factors may have influenced the interpretation. The best known example in science history is the alleged discovery of N-rays by the French professor of physics René Blondlot in 1903. He claimed that N-rays existed (that were different from the known X-rays). These rays could not be observed directly, but according to Blondlot only in particular experimental settings where the N-rays would affect the intensity of various light sources. The obvious point is that such a change in light intensity would require an extremely accurate observer. Immediately after the publication of Blondlots findings, many others also claimed that they could observe the same phenomenon. In the years 1903-1906, approximately 300 ...
Scientist have to recognize that legitimate debate and discussion is a good thing but they also have to take steps to avoid creating controversy when it isnt necessary. The ENCODE publicity fiasco is a good example. The ENCODE Consortium created a controversy by claiming that 80% of the human genome was functional. They should have known that this extreme statement would be challenged and they should have made sure that they represented the evidence against their claim. Instead, what they did was ignore that contrary evidence and not cite any of the scientific literature that would have weakened their case. That was bad science, even though we all agree that the Consortium members are entitled to express an opinion (even if they are wrong). They are not entitled to abandon skepticism and present only one side of a controversial issue. Thats not what scientific integrity is about ...

Edited by Dr. Miguel Ángel Royo-Bordonada. This thematic series on public health ethics follows a previous Public Health Reviews issue on the topic of public health ethics training in the European region, to emphasize the neglect and the importance of the topic for public health education in Europe. The current issue evolved from a Working Group of the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER) which was mandated to develop public health ethics curriculum materials for European schools of public health, as well as for practitioners and policy makers. Training of public health professionals in this field is essential to ensure confidence, credibility and public trust, when addressing the wide range of ethical conflicts that arise frequently in public health policy and practice.. Publication charges for this collection were funded by ASPHER. Articles have undergone the journals standard peer-review process overseen by the Guest Editor, who declares no competing ...
