About this Textbook

Researchers into HIV/AIDS face a gamut of ethical as well as scientific challenges. By viewing the gathering of data as a reciprocal activity between researchers, participants, and their communities, the expert contributors to Case Studies in Ethics and HIV Research bring these challenges to the fore. Studies from the United States and abroad depict the ongoing balance of risks and benefits while analyzing issues that range from confidentiality and informed consent to conducting studies with minority and other marginalized populations, from dealing with government and other funding agencies to ownership of findings. The book’s 25 collaborators offer readers new templates for devising and conducting studies that are valid, meaningful, and morally sound, with critical implications for all research involving human subjects.

Twelve case studies illuminate key ethical issues in HIV research and real-world approaches to addressing them, including:

  • Recruiting and selecting study participants.
  • Providing proper standards of care to control groups.
  • Improving researcher safety in the field.
  • Special issues in conducting research: activity-identified populations (e.g., IV drug users), children, cognitively-impaired persons, multiple sites.
  • Community outreach in service evaluation.
  • Training the new generation of researchers.

Improved study design and methodology, and improved outcomes for participants are important steps on the way to preventing and stopping the spread of AIDS. For professionals in public health research, the collective knowledge of Case Studies in Ethics and HIV Research will help to map out the road ahead.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The use of case studies makes this a rich book that contributes to the research ethics literature. The discussion of the cases and the ethical issues each case raises give readers a better appreciation of the breadth and depth of the relevant ethical and scientific concerns."  -Ana Smith Iltis, Ph.D., St. Louis University Center for Health Care Ethics, DOODY REVIEW                                                             

"Loue (Case Western Reserve Univ.) and Pike (AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland) present a series of reflections surrounding HIV/AIDS research. … The chapter topics and case studies are apt, and the analyses throughout are thought-provoking. The volume is well suited for use by science and medical students. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." -R. E. Kraft, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (7), 2008

"I am not sure who would want to read a more comprehensive treatment of the subject than this work. ... Never was a treatise on research ethics more needed." -Philip E. Veenhuis, MD, MPH. JAMA. Vol. 300(5), 2008

"For the first time, scholars tackle the moral complexities of the work in which HIV researchers have been engaged and highlight implications of the decisions being made in the field. These are decisions that can literally have life and death implications for those who participate in HIV-related research. ... Loue and Pike have found a way to establish a united approach, addressing these issues through highlighting their commonly held beliefs and perspectives, and producing a beautifully orchestrated volume where the realities of science dance in perfect tempo with the needs for protecting human rights.  ... important reading for numerous audiences ..." -Julianne M. Serovich, Ph.D., Columbus, Ohio. The Journal of Legal Medicine, 29 (2), 2008
