The ‘Nudgability’ Model for More Ethical Clinical Research

February 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Miriam Bentwich, 2019-2020 Visiting Scholar at the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, will introduce an enhanced nudging model specifically oriented to the clinical research context, including (1) exploring and explaining why and how nudging may occur in the clinical research domain and in what respect(s) it may pose an ethical challenge to autonomy; (2) explaining how the ‘nudgability’ model may better address at least some of the illuminated ethical challenges entailed in nudging within the clinical research domain; and (3) explaining why the ‘nudgability’ model may have further positive implications for clinical research ethics, particularly with respect to the application of social justice from a legal perspective (i.e., the “Common Rule” regarding research in human subjects).
