The video, Research Ethics,is a great look into how research has become safer for human subjects (Daigle, 2014). The discussion about the Nazi Experiments and Nuremberg Trials and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study are alarming in the inhumanity of them. What is also alarming is that the Nuremberg Code—the first statement about the ethical conduct of research—only came about in the late 1940s, and the next steps to protect the rights of humans in research only came about in the 1970s. For hundreds of years, humans could have been subject to all types of unethical and inhumane torture and treatments and most likely were. The Belmont Report of 1979 was the first attempt to outline the ethical principles of human research and has created a standard by which all research must be conducted. In the article, “The Belmont Report: The Triple Crown of Research Ethics,” Miracle (2016) discusses the future of research in relation to The Belmont Report. She discusses the importance of protection of health information as we in advance technologically and electronically in the field of health care. She also highlights the need for improvement of the report, as it is a historical document. Miracle (2016) suggests an ethical framework for the three core principles to help clarify any discrepancies that research subjects may face. Though I believe that human research is essential in the advancement of medical treatment and cure, the voluntary participation, informed consent, and total understanding of involvement is essential in the protection of ethical research and its integrity.
