Moral Entanglements

Although attention to medical researchers’ ancillary-care obligations is increasing, the discussion of these issues is still in its early phases. This chapter outlines some of the crucial empirical and conceptual points on which further work is needed. Conceptual and normative work is needed on how context affects what it means to provide ancillary care, on getting beyond the ideal type of the “researcher” in order to look at the complex collaborations among teams of investigators and staff with local hosts and perhaps more distant sponsors, on borderline cases of “participants” such as family members and those screened out of studies, on the boundaries of the concept of medical research, and on what to do when non-medical needs are uncovered by carrying out study procedures, as when surveys in HIV-transmission studies reveal spousal abuse. Empirical information about attitudes, practices, and ancillary-care needs is desperately needed across the board.
