It is of great importance that research projects are informed by sound
ethics, properly planned, approved by an independent ethical board and
rigorously monitored throughout the duration of the study. This chapter
introduces four principles that govern the conduct of ethical research using
relevant case examples to bring each principle to life. Topics explored
include ‘informed consent’, capacity to provide consent, minimising and
managing harm and the fair and equal treatment of study participants.
