Principles of risk management and patient safety.

  1. Research in EMS has been very slow to develop over the past decades. Several areas have been identified as barriers or challenges that may limit participation, including the ability to gain informed consent, access to Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval, and the potential to do harm if a known treatment is withheld in order to compare outcomes with treatments of unknown efficacy. Identify two ethical principles that you feel are most at risk when conducting EMS research and explain why you selected them.

    Your response should be at least 200 words in length.

  2. Please ensure the following textbook is used in the answer and the answer has the correct number of words excluding in text citation: Youngberg, B. J. (Ed.). (2011). Principles of risk management and patient safety. Chicago, IL: Jones & Bartlett.
