This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It departs from the usual principles-based approach and instead takes a predominantly consequentialist (harms and benefits) approach. It aims to be free of abstract philosophy, but will use the analysis of cases and a reasoned approach to examine alternative arguments. Whilst the book deals with issues in some depth it uses plain language and many clear examples of good and less good practice to illustrate points. It is at a level useful to both beginning and more experienced researchers.
"Supported by well-structured arguments, the authors present a range of pragmatic and philosophical insights, as well as sound advice for novice researchers in getting their research proposals accepted by ethics committees.
There are useful chapters on the ethics and politics of dissemination and research governance from an international perspective. This is a book to be read by all nurses interested in research and ethics".
