Ethics examines issues of right and wrong, good or bad, in any area of human interaction. (Melnyk, B.M., & Fineout-Overhold, E., p.750, 2019). It is important to uphold the rights of participants for research and treat them with respect. Among the Fifteen Ethical Principles of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, I would like to focus on consent. As researchers, consent is vital in order to respect a patient’s autonomy and providing the patient the capability of deciding for himself or herself. According to Rochester Institute of Technology (n.d.), proper consent must include several information such as explanation of the purpose of the research, expected duration, description of procedures or interventions, foreseeable risks, benefits, as well as a statement describing the extent to which confidentiality of the records identifying the subject will be maintained. Adequate knowledge with regards to the research may also help minimize participants from refusing to participate or withdrawing from the research. Similar to the clinical setting, acquiring consent for procedures is essential to achieve proper participation from the patients, as well as providing the patients with a piece of mind regarding the procedures they will undergo.
If research activities are carried out without patient informed consent, they may be seen as an unethical use of patients as research subjects.” (Melnyk, B.M., & Fineout-Overhold, E., p.751-752, 2019) We also have to bear in mind that the subjects are participating in the study or research voluntarily and that they are entitled to back out or refuse participation at any time without any penalty or loss of benefits. Full disclosure of the research enables the researchers to build trust with the participants and may potentially lead to better results and cooperation from participants.
