    Community Members as Recruiters of Human Subjects: Ethical Considerations.Christian Simon & Maghboeba Mosavel - 2010 - American Journal of Bioethics 10 (3):3-11.
    Few studies have considered in detail the ethical issues surrounding research in which investigators ask community members to engage in research subject recruitment within their own communities. Peer-driven recruitment and its variants are useful for accessing and including certain populations in research, but also have the potential to undermine the ethical and scientific integrity of community-based research. This paper examines the ethical implications of utilizing community members as recruiters of human subjects in the context of PDR, as well as the (...)

    Altruistic Discourse in the Informed Consent Process for Childhood Cancer Clinical Trials.Christian Simon, Michelle Eder, Eric Kodish & Laura Siminoff - 2006 - American Journal of Bioethics 6 (5):40-47.
    Scholars have debated the role that altruistic considerations play?and should play?in recruitment and decision-making processes for clinical trials. Little empirical data are available to support their various perspectives. We analyzed 140 audiotaped pediatric informed consent sessions, of which 95 (68%) included at least one discussion of how participation in a cancer clinical trial might benefit: 1) the pursuit of scientific knowledge generally; 2) other children with cancer specifically; and 3) ?the future? and other vaguely defined recipients. Clinicians initiated most (80%) (...)

    Getting Personal: Ethics and Identity in Global Health Research.Christian Simon & Maghboeba Mosavel - 2011 - Developing World Bioethics 11 (2):82-92.
    ‘Researcher identity’ affects global health research in profound and complex ways. Anthropologists in particular have led the way in portraying the multiple, and sometimes tension-generating, identities that researchers ascribe to themselves, or have ascribed to them, in their places of research. However, the central importance of researcher identity in the ethical conduct of global health research has yet to be fully appreciated. The capacity of researchers to respond effectively to the ethical tensions surrounding their identities is hampered by lack of (...)

    Ethical Problems in Conducting Research in Acute Epidemics: The Pfizer Meningitis Study in Nigeria as an Illustration.Emmanuel R. Ezeome & Christian Simon - 2010 - Developing World Bioethics 10 (1):1-10.
    The ethics of conducting research in epidemic situations have yet to account fully for differences in the proportion and acuteness of epidemics, among other factors. While epidemics most often arise from infectious diseases, not all infectious diseases are of epidemic proportions, and not all epidemics occur acutely. These and other variations constrain the generalization of ethical decision-making and impose ethical demands on the individual researcher in a way not previously highlighted. This paper discusses a number of such constraints and impositions. (...)

  5. Individual Genetic and Genomic Research Results and the Tradition of Informed Consent: Exploring US Review Board Guidance.Christian Simon, Laura A. Shinkunas, Debra Brandt & Janet K. Williams - 2012 - Journal of Medical Ethics 38 (7):417-422.
    Background Genomic research is challenging the tradition of informed consent. Genomic researchers in the USA, Canada and parts of Europe are encouraged to use informed consent to address the prospect of disclosing individual research results (IRRs) to study participants. In the USA, no national policy exists to direct this use of informed consent, and it is unclear how local institutional review boards (IRBs) may want researchers to respond. Objective and methods To explore publicly accessible IRB websites for guidance in this (...)

    Key Conceptual Issues in the Forging of “Culturally Competent” Community Health Initiatives: A South African Example.Christian Simon & Maghboeba Mosavel - 2008 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 17 (2):195-205.
    Many cultural competency efforts in healthcare stress the importance of cultural diversity and difference. This emphasis is necessary and well justified. It has helped sensitize healthcare systems to the differences among people and their health-related attitudes, preferences, and behaviors. However, the emphasis on diversity and difference has, unfortunately, also detracted from serious consideration of the things that cultures have in common and the possibility that socioeconomic differences are today far more important than cultural ones in determining healthcare outcomes.

    Bioethics Training in Uganda: Report on Research and Clinical Ethics Workshops. [REVIEW]Cynthia Griggins, Christian Simon, Frederick Nelson Nakwagala & Rebecca D. Pentz - 2011 - HEC Forum 23 (1):43-56.
    This essay describes and critically evaluates a co-operative educational program to train Ugandan health care workers in bioethics. It describes one bottom-up effort, a week-long intensive workshop in bioethics provided by the authors to health care professionals in a developing country—Uganda. We will describe the background and circumstances that led to the organization of the workshop, and review its planning, design, curriculum, and outcome. We will focus especially on measures taken to make the workshop relevant for the audience of Ugandan (...)

    Exploratory Health Disparities Research: The Need to Provide a Tangible Benefit to Vulnerable Respondents.Christian Simon & Maghboeba Mosavel - 2010 - Ethics and Behavior 20 (1):1-9.
    This article examines the responsibilities of researchers who conduct exploratory research to provide a service to vulnerable respondents. The term “service” is used to denote the provision of a tangible benefit in relation to the research question that is apart from the altruistic research benefits. This article explores what this “service” could look like, who might be responsible for providing it, and the challenges associated with such a service. The article argues that not providing a tangible benefit to vulnerable research (...)

    Cancer and the Computerized Family: Towards a Clinical Ethics of “Indirect” Internet Use. [REVIEW]Christian Simon & Sarah Schramm - 2008 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 11 (3):337-341.
    The normative dimensions of Internet use among patients and their families have not been studied in much depth in the field of clinical ethics. This study considers cancer-related Internet use among families and friends of cancer patients, and how that use of the Internet may affect patients and patient care. Interviews were conducted with 120 cancer patients, most of whom (76%) reported that family, friends, and others in their social network used the Internet in some way related to the patient’s (...)
