Ancillary care is defined as health care that research participants need “but that is required neither to successfully answer the researchers’ scientific question nor to avoid or mitigate harm resulting from participation in the research.”
Ethics of Ancillary Care in Research is a free, online, open access training course developed by The Global Health Network and our latest member site Bioethics, Research Ethics & Review.
This short course provides an overview of ancillary care in research settings, its relevance to researchers and the main ethical questions associated with the provision of ancillary care. It also provides an overview of the different moral reasons why researchers might have ancillary care obligations and the theories that could inform guidelines for determining what kinds of ancillary care ought to be provided for a given study. The course takes between 45 – 60 minutes to complete with a certificate issued upon successful completion of the final quiz.
