Ethical Implications of Intervening in Observational Research with Elderly and Disabled People

November 30, 2018 -
12:00pm to 1:30pm

Abstract: Dr. Degenholtz will discuss ethical issues that arise in the context of observational, evaluation, and health services research when “neutral” data collection identifies potential harm to study participants.  What are the boundaries of the responsibility of non-clinician researchers when participants demonstrate or report abuse, neglect, injury, or poor quality of care?  Data from an ongoing statewide evaluation will be presented as a case study.

Space is limited; lunch will be served. A reservation is required. To reserve a space, contact bioethics@pitt.edu.
