Tutorial: Ethical Conduct of Research involving Humans: Section 5: Inclusion in Research

Progress Check

1. Historically, which of the following groups have been excluded from research? (Select all that apply)

Women.

Native people.

Minority groups.

The elderly.

Children and other individuals who were unable to give consent for themselves.


2. Which items are true regarding inclusion of women in research? (Select all that apply)

Precluding pregnant women or those of childbearing potential from the right to decide whether to participate in research is an imposition on the women's autonomy.

The TCPS requires that women not be excluded from research solely on the basis of gender or reproductive capacity.

Precluding pregnant women or those of childbearing potential from the right to decide whether to participate in research is not an imposition on the women's autonomy.

Women must be included in research so they can gain the same benefits and share the same burdens as men.


3. In the context of research, vulnerable persons means:
(Select all that apply)

Persons whose situation or characteristics make them unable to provide free and voluntary consent.

Children.

Unconscious patients.

Persons with cognitive impairments.


4. What does the TCPS say about conducting research involving people who are not competent to consent for themselves?

They should be automatically excluded from research.

They should be included in research that may be potentially beneficial to them as individuals, or to the group to which they belong, with provisions to protect their vulnerability.

An ad hoc committee, including a member with legal expertise, must review the research project when it involves vulnerable populations.
