Example text

Critical reflection on one’s own practice is part of being a professional in any field. It is how professionals work out if what they are doing is effective, whether their practice is in the best interests of their clients. This has always been the case in medical research. It is not unusual for doctors to experiment on their patients, try things out without knowing if they will work, or test new drugs and treatment regimes. In educational research, the ‘research practitioner’ will have varying relationships and corresponding responsibilities that can be difficult to reconcile.

An incompetent or unethical professional might cause harm to an individual because of poor practice, and the capacity for such harm expands when research enters the equation. Unethical research may harm the individual, the institution, and the profession as a whole, and impact upon the future willingness of potential participants to engage in research. Just as doctors were forced to accept that they were not the sole arbiters of their practice both as professionals and researchers, so all researchers need to accept a greater degree of scrutiny due to increased legislation and societal expectations.

How might they be harmed? Does the potential harm outweigh the potential benefit? How can the possibility of harm be reduced? Are there any conflicts of interests for the researcher? Have participants consented fully? What does the research involve for participants? Are they aware of the risks? Clearly there are more questions that may be asked, depending upon the type of research, and any local or legislative requirements, such as research involving children, but these questions provide a basis for consideration of risk.
