Forum Instructions: For this assignment you must reply to this post and provide answers to the questions below, prior to 11:55 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday.
Continue to follow your classmates' posts for the remainder of the week and post at least 2 follow-up messages to your classmates' posts prior to 11:55 PM Eastern Time Sunday. Your follow-up posts can add additional insight to your classmates’ opinions and can challenge their opinions. Be sure to read the follow-up posts to your own posts and reply to any questions or requests for clarification.

You should conduct research on the topic of discussion and use this research to support your answers. You can use Internet articles, journals, text books, etc. In fact, I strongly recommend that you utilize the APUS Online Library for your research as they offer a plethora of reliable and pertinent research sources. You may access the Online Library by clicking on the “Library” link on the menu bar to the left inside the electronic classroom. However, NEVER use Wikipedia for your research as anyone can alter the information on this site making it a poor source of accurate information. Be sure to list your references at the end of your post, include in-text citations where applicable, and be sure that both are in APA format.

A number of recent events has brought to light the need to reinforce ethical conduct in scientific research. However, historically there have been a number of known cases that have, to varying degrees, demonstrated heinous acts of ethical misconduct regarding human research abuses.

For this week’s discussion exercise, you are to choose one of the topics below and briefly describe in 300-500 words: (1) the event and its impact on reform in clinical research practices, (2) a brief statement on your personal response to the event, and (3) why you think ethical considerations are important.

  • The Nuremburg Trials
  • Tuskegee Syphilis Study
  • The Henrietta Lacks story
  • Willowbrook Hepatitis Study
  • Project 4.1

Don’t forget to back up your arguments with properly cited references.
