Ethics of research and informed consent

, University of Alberta, Canada


In this session we will discuss a major issue that bedevils researchers: “How can we find the answer to our research problem while protecting our respondents?” Issues such as confidentiality vs. anonymity, attribution of “fact” vs. opinion, and unintended identification of sources will be discussed.
