Abstract:
Advancements in nursing practice are derived from the research of expert practitioners. Thus, advanced practice nurses have a professional responsibility to participate in research and many take an active role in clinical research studies. This presentation will describe case studies that exemplify some of the complex ethical issues advanced practice nurses may encounter within the clinical research setting. These situations occurred during a pharmaco-therapeutic clincial research project involving a high-risk obstetrical population. Various ethical issues emerged during the course of the research, including conflicts with autonomy, justice, beneficence, and nonmaleficence. In addition, appropriate ethical considerations in these cases were confounded by the presence of a second individual--the fetus. While obstetrics is a specialized field with unique patient care situations, the ethical issues that arise when advanced practice nurses are involved in clinical research are universal. Numerous problems arise in dealing with unpredictable human beings in the clincal setting that are not routinely discussed in research courses. The first conflict advanced practice nurses will often face is their role as a health care provider versus that of an objective research scientist. A systematic approach to the logical ordering of the facts, opinions, and values, is discussed within this complex scenario. Analysis is presented through the application of a case-based method of reasoned analysis.
