Webinar: Clinical and Ethical Considerations in Substance Use Disorder Research

  • 02/01/2022
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Zoom


  • Clinical and Ethical Considerations in Substance Use Disorder Research 

    Individuals with a substance use disorder may be vulnerable within a research context. While there is concern that these individuals as vulnerable participants may be exploited or experience unintended harm, denying or hindering access to participation may interfere in the beneficial advances of substance use disorder research. It is important for Clinical Research Nurses (CRNs) to understand some of the ethical considerations when conducting substance use disorder research as they may also impact individuals enrolled in other types of clinical research studies. This webinar will focus on the concerns related to undue inducement, impaired ability to concentrate on study protocols, re-traumatization that may occur when conducting study related interviews, and the impact on protocol fidelity and the CRN.
