  • 2022 OHRP Exploratory Workshop // Beyond Altruism - Exploring Payment for Research Participation

    Dear Bioethics Community,

    Given the interest in this community in payments to research participants, I wanted to share with you this upcoming OHRP Exploratory Workshop. You can find the details here:

    Beyond Altruism - Exploring Payment for Research Participation

    Livestream on Thursday, September 15, 2022 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. EDT No registration required.

    As society moves away from a paternalistic view of protecting research participants, many are revisiting the ethics and utility of payment for research participation. The goal of this workshop is to explore the role of paying people for their participation, the impact of payment, as well as the challenges and considerations for how payments should be made. Session 1 will focus on ethical and theoretical considerations. Session 2 will explore the practical challenges and implementations.
