Health researchers, particularly in low-resource settings, may discover that their study participants have significant health needs unrelated to the question being studied. HIV researchers in central Africa, for instance, may find out a participant has advanced cervical cancer. Do researchers have moral obligations in regard to these needs, and if so, when and why?
This presentation will explore the ethical basis of ancillary care obligations, conceptual models trying to offer practical guidance, and the potential role for IRBs.
