Payment in Pediatric Research

Payment in Pediatric Research

(p.130) 8 Payment in Pediatric Research
Children in Medical Research

Lainie Friedman Ross (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the ethics of payment in pediatric research that does not offer the prospect of direct benefit (nontherapeutic research). It addresses the ethical objection that payment perverts motivation, and that this can have two adverse consequences: it may distort the voluntariness of the parent’s permission and the child’s assent; and it may lead to an unjust recruitment or selection of subjects. It is argued that it is morally permissible to provide payment for participation in pediatric research. Related issues that need to be resolved to decide what is a fair price for the participation of children in nontherapeutic research are discussed.
