Responsible research

a systems approach to protecting research participants


Description

Issues addressed in the book include the need to distinguish the science, ethics, and conflict of interest reviews; desired qualifications for investigators and reviewers; the process of informed consent; federal, and institutional, oversight; and the role of accreditation. Recommendations for areas of key interest include suggestions for legislative approaches, compensation for research-related injury, and the refocusing of institutional review boards. Responsible Research will be important to anyone interested in the issues that are relevant to the practice of using human subjects as research participants, but especially so to policy makers, research administrators, investigators, and research sponsors--but also including volunteers who may agree to serve as research participants.
