"Civilian – Military Collaboration: Ethical Considerations in Research"

Presented by: Sheena M. Eagan, MPH, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies, Brody School of Medicine, East Carolina University

Abstract:
Since 9/11, the U.S. has been at war, raising a number of old and new military ethics issues with respect to research. This presentation focuses on human-subjects research in the U.S. military, providing an overview of the unique ethical considerations involved in research with military populations. More specifically focused on civilian-military research collaboration, this presentation provides necessary information to civilian-researchers interested in working with a military population. During this session ethically relevant questions will be addressed, such as: What should informed consent look like in a military population? Should practices be altered with consideration to rank, and other military-specific factors? Is it possible to avoid coercion given the military values of obedience and hierarchy? Is it possible to balance the protection of service-member rights with military necessity?

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Describe ethical considerations related to research with a military population.
Distinguish unique cultural and institutional factors relevant to military research.
Identify ethical issues unique to research with a military population.
Describe possible ethical/policy issues that inhibit or facilitate collaborative research in this area.
