Considering Privacy Protections for Human Research

(p.251) 16 Considering Privacy Protections for Human Research
Human Subjects Research Regulation

Suzanne M. Rivera

The MIT Press

Protecting the rights and welfare of research subjects requires consideration of risks in the context of everyday life. As our attitudes about privacy in everyday life change, this chapter argues that so should the regulations that govern privacy protections in human research. Overly cautious restriction on research uses of data and specimens is unnecessary and would slow the progress of beneficial studies that could improve human health and wellbeing.
