(Emanuel, Abdoler, & Stunkel, n.d.). N/A While Kennedy Krieger did submit their study to an independent review board, this board was from John Hopkins University, of which the research team was an affiliate. Additionally, the researchers were faculty members at John Hopkins, which creates a conflict of interest. (Lewin, 2001) Informed Consent Informed consent is the formal process in which study participant are made aware of the study, and risks associated with it. There are four criteria that must be met for this consent to be ethical (Emanuel, Abdoler, & Stunkel, n.d.) : - Competence – the participant must be of sound mind to understand and make decisions - Disclosure – the Kennedy Krieger’s informed consent appears to have met the at least three criteria of informed consent: - Competence – parents provided consent on behalf of the children - Disclosure – participants were told lead still remained in the houses (Jones, 2001), and they were provided with safe cleaning procedures (Lewin, 2001). The informed consent appears to have failed in: - Disclosure – they did not disclose the dangers, especially to healthy children, of prolonged exposure to lead paint (Lewin, 2001) - Understanding – based on the lawsuit, it seems clear some of the parents did not understand the risk involved in © Copyright 2015 College for America at Southern New Hampshire University.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
