Abstract

SUAREZ-OBANDO, Fernando. INFORMED CONSENT AS AN INCLUSION CRITERION. CONCEPTUAL CONFUSION, MANIPULATION, DISCRIMINATION OR COERCION?. pers.bioét. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.244-256. ISSN 0123-3122.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5294/PEBI.2016.20.2.9.

Research protocols are joining the list of inclusion criteria for signing informed consent. This may be due to conceptual confusion, intent to manipulate the subject, or even discrimination and coercion. This article reviews the basic concepts of inclusion criteria and analyzes the negative consequences of reducing a person's voluntary participation in research and the process of informed consent to merely signing a document that is likened, in turn, to a criterion for recruiting subjects.

Keywords : Informed consent; coercion; uses of epidemiology; research; scientific misconduct.
