'Researchers must be particularly aware of vulnerability of some participants.'(Parahoo200 6:117): Critically analyse the ways in which researchers can minimise harm to vulnerable patients participating in research within the NHS.
Ethical research practice requires a consideration of duties and ethical responsibilities to research participants, professional and academic colleagues, research sponsors and the wider public…

Introduction

Meeting the diverse needs of these stakeholders generates a number of questions and sometimes conflicts about responsibilities and values, where the most important philosophical need would be to carry out research in a way sensitive to the needs of participants in the field (Chadwick and Tadd, 1992, 7-63).
Some basic issues in research ethics centre on special levels of protection and aid for vulnerable and disadvantaged parties, when a research is contemplated involving their participation. These issues cut across clinical ethics, public health ethics and research ethics (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2002a). When individuals lack the ability to select the approach that would be most consistent with their values and preferences, it is inappropriate to give them control over their consent to a research (Royal College Of Nursing Research Society, 2004). Vulnerable persons usually need the protection of a trustworthy individual to make decisions on their behalf. ...

Although it is not a simple process; however, it is an essential skill to develop to explore research results in an independent way. Transmission of best practice is the first step in the process of application evidence of best practice in patient care, bridging the gap between evidenced best practice and reality practice. In addition, critical reading changes attitudes and perceptions of…

In examining the level of evidence, there is a hierarchical structure in place. This hierarchical structure is such that the highest level of evidence can be arrived at through the utility of randomized control trial (RCT). At the second level are Quasi-experiments whereby there is no random assignment of participants to treatment groups, however, treatment and the causal relationship is…

These tests may be used to monitor the progress of kidney dysfunction, to evaluate kidney function prior to some procedures, such as a CT (computed tomography) scan, to calculate a creatinine clearance: measures how effectively the kidneys are filtering small molecules like creatinine out of the blood. Urine creatinine may also be used with a variety of other urine tests as a sort of correction…
