PlagiarismResponse Feedback: Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit, including those obtained through confidential review of others’ research proposals and manuscripts. Fabrication in research is the making up of results and recording or reporting them. Falsification of research is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting dataor results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record. The principle of beneficence requires the researcher to do good and “above all, do no harm.p.185Question 8 A graduate student receives a mailed survey asking her to participate in research about unpleasant experiences in graduate school. She is asked to return the survey, and the instructions say, “Return of this instrument implies consent.” Why does this constitute consent?Answers: a. Studies like this are exempt from institutional review board oversight, so consent is not required.b. Not returning the survey constitutes refusal, and subjects may indeed refuse by not completing the survey. The opposite is equally true.c. The study is anonymous, so there is no risk of disclosure.d.
Only interventional research requires consent.Response Feedback: The requirements for written consent may be waived in research that “presents no more than minimal risk of harm to subjects and involves no procedures for which written consent is normally required outside of the research context.” For example, if questionnaires are used to collect relatively harmless data, a signed consent form from the subjects would not be required. The subject’s completion of the questionnaire may serve as consent. The top of the questionnaire might contain a statement such as “Your completion of this questionnaire indicates your consent to participate in this study.”p. 179Question 9 A researcher who desires to determine the cause-and-effect relationship between the use of a new car seat restraint and the subsequent rate of children’s spinal cord injury will utilize which form of nursing research?
