Human Subject Protection
This course is designed to prepare investigators involved in the design and/or conduct of research involving human subjects to understand their obligations to protect the rights and welfare of subjects in research. The course material presents basic concepts, principles, and issues related to the protection of research participants.
Evidence-based research involving human subjects requires that researchers be cognizant of and adhere to the important tenets necessary to protect subjects from abuse, harm, injury, and/or other undesirable outcomes resulting from the research process. Based on this fact, write a minimum of 2 pages (Title page and Reference not included in page count) of an APA formatted paper answering the following questions with a minimum of 3 “short” sentences for each question:
- Historical background of human subjects protection?
- Find and discuss at least one historical incident of human subjects abuse in research and what human right was violated.
- What steps will you take to minimize risks on human subjects?
- What populations are considered vulnerable populations and why?
- What are appropriate ways to recruit subjects?
- How would you properly obtain consent?
- What are the elements of a properly executed consent?
- What committees are responsible for monitoring the protection of human subjects?
