Review quote

Its excellent articles cover almost all historical, conceptual, and empirical topics of clinical research ethics in a comprehensive and systematic synthesis...not only an excellent resource for training researchers and members of research review committees. Beyond that, it is an essential reading and a very valuable source for anybody working on and interested in research ethics. Medical Health Care and Philosophy ...provides scholarly, well-referenced analyses of different points of view on many of the challenging issues confronting clinical trial ethics. The Lancet This is an excellent and comprehensive compedium of scholarship, novel research, practical advice, and dependable reference. The chapters dedicated to international research ethics and disparities in research are prescient of the foci that the field will have to embrace in the near future. The book's inclusive and broad focus makes it a worthwhile investment as it will remain useful for some time to come. Doody's Notesshow more
