Silent Partners: Human Subjects and Research Ethics

When is a human study ethical? For years, science and society have struggled with this question. Experts have put great effort into developing ethical principles and rules that adequately protect and respect volunteers in studies aimed at improving human health. But experts have missed something important. They have created a research ethics system without the help of people who know what it is like to be a research subject. This is a serious omission.

Experienced research subjects can make valuable contributions to research ethics. People who have been in studies have information about the experience that other people can overlook. Their experience as subjects gives them special insights into ethics, too. Experienced subjects also know about problems that can lead people to refuse to join studies, or drop out before studies are complete.

Scientists and ethicists often speak of subjects as partners in research, but the reality is quite different. Experienced subjects are rarely appointed to the advisory groups that create guidelines for ethical research, or to the committees that review individual studies to determine whether they meet ethical and regulatory standards.

A large body of work describes the perceptions and viewpoints of people who have participated in research. But experts rarely use this material to guide improvements in human subject protection. Although subjects have the power to decide whether to participate in a study, they have little control over anything else that goes on in research.

Silent Partners moves research subjects to the forefront. It examines what research participation is like for healthy volunteers and patients. It explains why subjects’ voices should influence research ethics. Silent Partners shows how experienced research subjects can become real-not just symbolic-partners in research.

Engaging Millennials for Ethical Leadership: What Works for Young Professionals and Their Managers

 

“Engaging Millennials for Ethical Leadership brings broad perspective to the discussion of millennials at work. Jessica McManus Warnell evaluates the insights we’ve gained from emerging leaders over the past few years and the implications for today’s multigenerational workforce, where a growing number of employees at all levels seek not just a career, but a calling. As organizational models continue to evolve, her analysis points to more robust, values-based talent development strategies that optimize engagement and performance. This is essential reading for all who believe that unyielding integrity is the ultimate competitive advantage.” – Susan P. Peters, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, GE

 

“Business professionals and business educators find themselves questioning if their tried and true methods of engagement are relevant to the latest generation of employees and students, the millennials. In this book, McManus sheds highly focused and well-grounded light on this issue with respect to how to best prepare today’s emerging leaders to handle the ethical challenges they are likely to face at work. It is a must read for educators, managers, coaches and trainers who face this emerging challenge.” – Edward J. Conlon, Sorin Society Professor of Management & Director, Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership, Author of Getting It Right: Notre Dame on Leadership and Judgment in Business

 

Satchel - What Movies Teach.jpgRoslyn Satchel

What Movies Teach about Race: Exceptionalism, Erasure, and Entitlement

What Movies Teach about Race: Exceptionalism, Erasure, & Entitlement reveals the way that media frames in entertainment content persuade audiences to see themselves and others through a prescriptive lens that favors whiteness. These media representations threaten democracy as conglomeration and convergence concentrate the media’s global influence in the hands of a few corporations. By linking film’s political economy with the movie content in the most influential films, this critical discourse study uncovers the socially-shared cognitive structures that the movie industry passes down from one generation to another. Roslyn M. Satchel encourages media literacy and proposes an entertainment media cascading network activation theory that uncovers racialized rhetoric in media content that cyclically begins in historic ideologies, influences elite discourse, embeds in media systems, produces media frames and representations, shapes public opinion, and then is recycled and perpetuated generationally.

The Business Ethics Field Guide: The Essential Companion to Leading Your Career and Your Company to Greatness

 

Any cursory online search will reveal thousands of books and articles that try to help you become a better manager or a better leader. According to many of these texts, managing involves planning and budgeting, organizing, controlling, problem solving, and communicating; while leading means establishing direction, aligning people, motivating and inspiring them, and creating change.

In this book, we propose a third set of skills that are often neglected but are just as essential for effective leadership: the ability to clarify individual and organizational values and to find a way forward when these values conflict. This book will help you develop those skills and apply them in your organization to become a better leader.

A Casebook in Interprofessional Ethics: A Succinct Introduction to Ethics for the Health Professions

 

The first ethics casebook that integrates clinical ethics (medical, nursing, and dental) and research ethics with public health and informatics.  The book opens with five chapters on ethics, the development of interprofessional ethics, and brief instructional materials for students on how to analyze ethical cases and for teachers on how to teach ethics.  In today’s rapidly evolving healthcare system, the cases in this book are far more realistic than previous efforts that isolate the decision-making process by professions as if each is not embedded in a larger context that involves healthcare teams, hospital policies, and technology. The central claim of this book is that ethics is an important common ground for all of the health professions.  Furthermore, when we recognize that our professions converge upon a common goal we will find less conflict and more pleasure in working together.
