A Field Training Guide For Human Subjects Research Ethics
This week, in a Health in Action article published in PLoS Medicine, Maria Merritt and colleagues (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) report on a Field Training Guide for Human Subjects Research Ethics that they have developed to help train field workers in research ethics. The Field Training Guide for Human Subjects Research Ethics is freely available to the public. In this article the authors address how to identify field training needs and meet high standards of research ethics at every level of human subject interaction.
